    Ideal Workstation

    What is the ideal workstation for you?
    What looks professional in your eyes?
    Which Desktop Environment or Window Manager? Probably accompanied with some screenshots? and which theme and icon set you are using...
    Maybe this could inspire some people to create a nice professional theme by observing what people like and dislike ?

    I am using the "Web" window decoration with "Plastik Widgets" and the "Free Icons" icon set

    Ps. Sorry for my english if i made any spelling/grammer errors

    nice wallpaper
    semi-transparent, black taskbar (single on the bottom)
    and big icons (which is why i use gnome )

    i use kde i havent used gnome for well lets see... since fedora core 3 which was a while ago i thought id give it another try when i installed edgy but it wasnt stable at all it crashed when changing themes, browsing, creating files it reminded me of windows... (no offense intended i support gnome and believe there should always be a alternative) i didnt bother looking it up so i just reverted back kde and got rid of edgy all together when the ati drivers kept giving me trouble back on good ol' dapper

    Re: Ideal Workstation

    I like mine...
    I use Glossy P borders and controls, and Dropline Etiquette icons.
    I don't usually have Icons on my desktop but I put them there so they can be seen, and I have Rhythmbox open to show off the shiney blue buttons and scrollbar.

    ^Ugly desktops distract me all the time

    Here's my desktop. I quite like it. Sorry about the large file size, I guess it's because of my wallpaper. I had to resize it (make it smaller) to just get it uploaded. my actual desktop is 1400x1050
