    you're using windows? hit CTRL and PrintScreen (PrintSCRN on my keyboard) then open up paint (Start>All Programs>Accessories>Paint) and then hit paste and then hit save...then upload it somewhere ;) it's pretty easy :D

    here's mine

    [​IMG]


    The SR+ in the top left is my non-windows and non-State of Florida real nick and business logo... it is unfortunate but the way things are - you can not use a + sign on a license plate or in a file name or eMail address in windows so I have to live with spelling it out. The pic of Vincent in the lower left is from one of his self portraits and is only the right side of his face which I mirrored and joined to make it look like a full frontal of him. [I had to prove my old art teacher wrong... both sides of his face can be identical.]

    I keep single click shortcuts to all of the programs I use in two sub-directories that appear on the taskbar... the standard quicklaunch (lower left - where I keep all of the ones I use constantly) and in the quiklaunch_2 (lower right - next to the icons in the system tray) - where I keep all of the other ones that I use regularly. The only icon on my desktop is my recycle basket that windows will not let me take off the desktop (Gawd bless you Bill Gates & his Microsoft ppl). In my system tray are icons for my network status, ILsystemWiper (one of the best programs available for managing run away cookies, temp files, recycle bin, search history, etc.), Norton junk, and one of the best memory managers availabe for windoze - Cacheman.

    I use Internet Explorer 7 Beta 2 with tabbed browsing, which I have found (for me anyway) to be far less hinky than firefox, netscape or some of the other browsers on the market.

    Behind the taskbar is a bar that can not be seen when the taskbar is dispayed. It is visible on boot or if you toggle the taskbar off and it says who owns the computer and other relevant information.

    I can not stand the new windows look and go with the classic and NEVER have to click start, click programs, click accessories, etc. click, click, click.

    I also use the toshiba 17" portable puter (desktop is too big to display here) so i brought the size down to something most of you can see unless on standard VGA.

    This is one of the images of the screen shot of my Pocket PC which I change on a regular basis depending upon which customer I am visiting or what kind of mood I am in.

    Xandros 4.x Linux using KDE 3.4.2 SuperKaramba for the desktop extensions. 1680 x 1050. My favorite of the four virtual desktops below. And since it's dual boot, below that is my windows deskt... oops I guess not (Windows... :flipoff2:).

    Linux is not for newbs...it takes time to get used to it...i use non user-friendly distros so that people dont screw with my settings. Ubuntu is pretty nice for ease of use

    Linux hijack, which linux as of now is the most user friendly to use? I've tried Knoppix, attempted Gentoo, and Mepis, but none were very user friendly.

    I always have the problem of after an install being able to use it much. Hardly can get the net or gaim or much like that to work. Isn't there something like "ap-get" that is suposed to install things for you?

    You're referring to apt-get. Here's a link that describes the various package managers.

    If you don't like doing things like that, you can get Xandros or Linspire which both have libraries of compatible packages available to registered users. Disadvantage is it costs.

    Try a Live CD, to check if you like it and that it works with your Hardware.

    Ubuntu Live CDs
    Edubuntu
    http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/edubuntu/releases/6.06/release/edubuntu-6.06-live-i386.iso I haven't used.
    Mono Live
    http://iso.mono-live.org/breezy-mono-live-118-i386.iso I like.
    http://iso.mono-live.org/dapper-mono-live_1_1_13_1_27-i386.iso Alpha version, I like.
