It's not august yet, and I plan to hold off to get ubuntu until 9.10 comes out (or even 10.04 o_O)

Until then, have a look at my july screenshot: Click Here (http://i30.tinypic.com/2ykf1io.png)

and the REAL LIVE desktop (ignore the current screen on the monitor, old computer next to desk, and the mouse and keyboard, all of that junk is gone/updated now for august): Click Here (http://fc03.deviantart.com/fs47/f/2009/198/4/9/Thy_New_desk_With_thy_new_comp_by_coldReactive.jpg )

I'm using windows right now, and everybody has seen enough of that.

CHeeetah! Its too early.

Yeah it's not even July 31st here. Won't be August for another 24 hours in my part of the world. :P

How about Everybody posts a link to the screen background, theme, conkyrc, etc. Basically, if someone wants their desktop to look like yours (imitation is the sincerest form of flattery), it shouldn't be hard. If were using open source software, can't we make our themes open?

Sorry if I sound harsh, it just seems like whenever someone says to post where you got the theme or wallpaper, people just ignore them. Yes, I know the original poster mentioned it, but notice I put a little emphasis on Everybody.

My setup is the default jaunty layout, lol. I don't do much customizing, and if I did it would be with menus instead of colors and whatnot.

There's a custom I think, and it should be respected that this ain't to be posted until it's August somewhere in the world.

It's a honour to own the screenshot thread for the month, (some...don't look at me! spend days preparing for it, as soon asit's time) and it's cheating if you do it before August! :P

The main reason for not revealing details immediately to force people to inquire about them, and in the process says how awesome the desktop is. If all details for shown, they'll copy without posting anything, and the desktop would get the public praising lol

It's a bit narisstic, but getting kicks from others praising you if one of the reasons people post in the first place.

I generally post details only when major changes are made. , or a refresher is some time to time. (My desktop doesn't change THAT much these days)
