Just for fun. Everyone show us what's on your desktop. Try to feature some applications you use often. And remember to protect the identity of innocents.

RE-EDIT: Deleted the information, 'cos of a few people signing up top the forums asking about certain programs, without even knowing what Machinae Supremacy is.

This is my desktop desu. It features Titans desu. It's on my old computer, which I am struggling to manage with a 20gig harddisk. Desu.

As usual, it's got winamp in the background, and I use the Gimp for most of my simple imaging needs.

 I hardly have any programs on it though, and my only game is StarCraft. Poor machine, it's 7 years old now...

 It's amazing how much old crap I find lying around on it...I deleted my entire iTunes library that I haven't used in ages for an extra new free 816mb (It's a lot, okay?). I have all the stuff burned to disk anyway.

Is that wallpaper by Hameed? It really looks like his style.

my desktop is practical.  which means, it has icons.

i never saw the appeal of *not* having icons.  its like, woohoo!  a folder that is CONSTANTLY open, that i refuse to use!  what marvelous efficiency!

in other words, the cult of GTD is not for you, sirix.  but i still love you.

I rename all my "shortcut to"'s as well... Infact, my shortcuts are very organised and I shortened the titles so you dont have to click them to view the whole name.

Windows Live Messenger becomes "wlm"
Photoshop CS3 becomes "photoshop"
My Computer becomes "my pc"

..You get the idea. I'll post pics later.

<3

I used to have a 30 Gig hard drive for years until about a year or so ago. I used to be wary of the number of apps I had and file size too. Then I bought a whole new system with 300 gig and believe me, once you are given space, you will find ways to fill it ;)
