I had I <3 MountainDew's '07 HardRock on my desktop for a bit, but it's made way for a lovely Saab 99 2-door.

I think I'm the first Mac-desktop post in this topic....

props on the mac, still havent owned one in a long time, been running linux for about 10 years, but i still have my windows box next to mine for testing sakes. plus a ****-ton of other boxes, im a damn geek. but i love my bikes!!! wouldn't mind having a mac box but don't want to spend any money, haven't spend $10 in the last 10 years on boxes, clients just want to drop them when they upgrade and im fine. no issues here. still running my old school stuff but it runs like a champ. spyware ftl!

My main desktop: Solaris/SPARC running on a dual headed Sun Ultra2/2300. Window manager is fvwm2 with a lot of customisation. The desktop environment is Gnome2. And I'm also running a bunch of WindowMaker dockapps.

display :0.0


display :0.1



My laptop running FreeBSD. Windowing environment is set up similarly to my desktop.

Here's a recent addition to my stash of machines. This screenshot is off my "guest" laptop. This is a laptop I loan out to people who are visiting me and didn't happen to bring their own laptop but want to hop on to check email and browse and such. It's an old IBM ThinkPad X21 (ultraportable). It sports a 600MHz Pentium-III, 192MB of RAM, 10GB HD and a 12" display. I stuck a cheapo 802.11b wireless card I had laying around in it. It's loaded with a stock install of FreeSBIE-1.1 LiveCD. This is a FreeBSD-5.3R distro with a bunch of goodies all wrapped into an ISO that can be run on a diskless machine. It's similar to the idea behind the Knoppix Linux distro. However, you can also choose to install it to the HD if you want. It's a quick way to build a fully working out-of-the-box FreeBSD laptop. The install took me less than half an hour. I just popped the CD in, hit the enter key a few times and off it went. The window manager is XFCE4 (FreeSBIE also comes with Fluxbox) and I'm running both Gnome and KDE servers underneath to support any apps that need those. Running FreeBSD makes this pretty snappy for such a relatively old and limited machine. Windows 2000 was a dog on this thing. And XP was simply painful.



This second set of screenshots are from my Cingular 2125 phone running Windows Mobile 5. I've highly customised it which is fairly easy to do since all the screens and such are configured via XML.

My work desktop (a two-monitor affair) - - 21 on the left, 17 on the right. That's me at a race this year through Loretto Julian's fish-eye lens.

How do you make it so you can see the little thumbnail and when you click you go to the full image?
