    Imageshack makes it tough. You have to view the full image within the website itself, then right-click and "View Image" to view the picture by its lonesome. That URL can be put inside the IMG tags.

    Here are a couple from me. Because I'm using Ubuntu 11.04 as much as possible for the next couple of weeks, I have three OSes on the go!

    Thanks, I probably could have figured that out if not for the date and time of the capture and post. :D

    No kidding! Apparently I'm not the only one up at all hours of the night.

    I really love your desktop it's really looking neat. In fact I like it more then the Windows 7 Aero look to be honest.

    These are the same shots I took last August. Nothing changed, and nothing will for a very long time. I like to keep my desktops for years, if I can. My Windows wallpaper (If I may call it such) as been the same for 5 years now.

    Speaking of which, no need to show that one. Windows is my de facto working machine (Linux is a learning and code porting machine). As such, I don't beautify it much.

    It's a dark blueish/grayish color (#30414e). In fact, one of the things that appealed to me about TG was the logo that shares my windows background tone more coincidentally, my own webpage (http://www.quiettech.org)

    I don't have a particular favorite background, I have an alternating background myself and I get many of them from here.

    http://www.desktopwallpaperspace.com/other/something-in-space-res6061-1920x1080.html

    The others are from other Sci-Fi shows, Fantasy, Games or what ever abstract art that I find that I like. I am thinking about using a program to change my Aero color with the background as well, I was going to give that a go with the monitor upgrade so I could appreciate the background and colors more, only one monitor right can't really appreciate what it would be set to. /c:

    One of my best friend's is much like this... hasn't configured a single thing as far as I'm aware in his OS X installation. He might have even changed the background color to a flat color :D

    I especially like this photo (again, I have no idea where I got the pic?). Using Adwaita Cupertino Unity GTK theme with Adwaita Cupertino L Window theme:

    A fresh OS install calls for a fresh screenshot.

    Still have a lot to install or else I'd show the Start screen.
