Post your latest screenshot!

Recommended Posts

jimf43 and I thought it might be fun to have a thread here at Linuxcompatible.org where everyone could post a link to their latest screenshot!

By the way Jim sent his latest, showing IceWM under Mepis to the Mepis site, and they've posted it!

If you would like to post your latest, please do so here!

To start things off, here's one I put together last night showing IceWM under Fedora Core 1... smile

It's in the Portage tree, you just emerge opera and you're away. There are a number of ebuilds covering proprietary and closed source stuff like that, stuff like WineX, VMWare even the proprietary drivers for nVidia and ATi graphics card. I think it's really cool that Gentoo provide this stuff instead of getting bogged down in licencing politics like other distros as it puts the choice in the users hands instead of just demanding they do things a certain way.

I haven't fooled with it much, but the latest Gnome (and I think KDE) allows you to set up toolbars in odd configurations. The more I see of the new Gnome desktop, the more I'm impressed by it. Gnome seems to be trying for some true inovations. On the other hand, KDE seems to be more interested in duplicating the Window$ look & functions. I think it will be the way databases are handled and integrated that will finaly decide the winner.

Well nothing really, but it sure does look hot wink! Thanks for the tip guys. I'll have to post a screenshot later.

 

Also, found a new one 'lshw.' gives you a printout of the whole system parameters. Not flashy, but, very useful.
