    the ugly desktop thread

    while beauty may be in the eye of the beholder, true ugliness seems to be an assessment that is more easily agreed upon. my grandfather loved limburger on crackers and i think it's digusting, but, neither one of us wanted to be licked by a dog who had just been drinking out of the toilet. so, with that in mind, i'm opening this thread in search of the ugliest, toilet drinking desktop we can come up with. enter as often as you like. (i'll be back with my own, shortly.)

    Re: the ugly desktop thread

    this is harder than i thought it would be. my first attempt is just kind of bad, rather than ugly (might even look nice at christmas).



    back to the kitchen...

    squeabs, i think you've made the same mistake i made - too festive.

    i'm going to overlook beercz's attempt to cheapen this thread.

    And so you should

    Someone had to do it!

    I don't have an ugly desktop at the moment though (well, at least I don't think I do):

    How can you think with all that stuff on your desktop? My desktop is always void of any shortcuts or icons, I have gnome-do for that!

    Re: the ugly desktop thread

    squeabs has the better attempt so far.

    Use that nasty high contrast theme, with a muddy brown background.

    Edit: Combine squeabs' high contrast widgets with Valok's icon clutter. And throw in a clashing wallpaper.

    Alright. Mud background, ugly colors, and trying to stay away from festive.
