Thread: EoFF Desktop Thread!!!

  1. #1

    Default EoFF Desktop Thread!!!

    I have a weird fascination with other people's desktops. I love to see how organised their icons are (if they are organised at all), and what wallpapers they choose. I also used to be really into customisation, and used to like seeing all the ways people changed the theme of their desktop. I think there's a reason operating systems are so customizable - you can tell a lot about a person from what their desktop looks like.

    In truth, I am not very organised, as you can see from my screenshot. I save random files anywhere and everywhere in my filesystem. However usually I choose to "Hide Desktop Icons" because I like to see my wallpaper, lol. I included them in my screenshot so you can see how disorganised I can be.

    So, what kind of person are you, and can you tell what kind of person you are by your desktops?

    BONUS POINTS: Include a pic of your actual desk with your computer on it, I didn't because I'm lazy and also my physical desktop is even messier.

    I usually have something gaming related, but lately I just wanted something that looks cool.

    My desktop is very minimalistic. I don't like things to interfere with my wallpaper.

    This is literally my desktop. No icons. No start bar. Just images.


    They see me rolling. They hating, patrolling.

    I usually have a dual monitor setup, but my second monitor is currently dead, and its replacement is somewhere in the Norwegian Royal Mail. I'll post again when I get it.

    -edit- updated with that higher res wallaper I found.

    I have way too many shortcuts floating around on there. Need to trim them down.

    I will harshly judge people if they have more than about 5 icons on their desktop.

    I am judging all of you.

    Parker: Did you black out all of your pornography files/folders? Points for effort, but CLEAN YOUR DESKTOP.

    Cuch: I am impressed with the cleanliness of your computer station, good job.

    Sephex: I just had to stab my eyes with a biro and scroll past the awfulness of Parker's desktop, and yours is literally a sight for sore eyes. Look how calming that looks.

    shion: Uugh, the calendar is clashing! Do you use iTunes and Windows Media Player? And does everyone align their icons to the left?

    plef: A+++++

    Jiro: *shrug*

    Mirage: I hope your second monitor arrives soon. You certainly like pink.

    Vivi22: That's the kind of thing I would expect you to have. I like that you have a Sprites folder.

    sharky: Huh?

    Spuuky: Zen as always.

    Mine:
