My Windows 98 computer (mainly for old games):

My dear laptop, orepurifer, running two gnome-terminals on a random workspace, nothing special.




Edit: I just realized that I'm running on a SMP kernel, which is rather useless since I don't have multiple cores. Damn me. :<

Well, "Harry Potter" isn't very beautiful, I have to say. But a wizard on the pitch!

Mine is 0, 78, 152.
Which is quite weird, because I don't remember ever changing it. And it's certainly not the default, because I install new computers at work all the time.

Dunno really. I think it's useful to know how much CPU/RAM usage there is though. Helps me find out when something's crashed/leaking memory.

I played 7 of them (Lba (duh), Starcraft, Giants, Operation Flashpoint, Warcraft 3, Anachronox, Prey). Nice wallpaper btw.

I changed the desktop around Easter to try and be seasonal, and haven't got around to changing it yet.
