Haven't see one of these threads in a while.
I'm still using my MacBook but I stuck a copy of Ubuntu on it, I wouldn't recommend Ubuntu on a Mac before you ask.
Anyway go . .
Hey Dev, haven't seen you on in a while.
It all looks a bit squished, but hey that's what the screen shot comes out as... I'm going to make a new back ground from the nvidia site. I say make because my total resolution is 3360x1080. Having two different size monitors makes things a bit harder for wallpapers.
Just rebuilt my system today, and went with a Ghost In The Machine desktop theme.
Kubuntu 10.04 (pre-alpha) - and it boots to login in 13 seconds. :D
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
Just set up Virtualbox 3.1. Compiz Fusion and everything right in my windows install.
After Kubuntu 10.04 re-build (click for full-size)
I decided to back to OS X. Currently running Snow Leopard which is the best yet. Ubuntu on Mac hardware is definitely not a good idea unless you are a serious open source advocate or have extensive need of exclusive Linux features.
Gorgeous picture Dev, where was that taken?!
Ok this is going to sound novice, but how do I grab my desktop? I have tried print screen and everything with no luck.
i usually use snagit or print screen and past in paint.
print screen like you did, then do a paste in a image editor (paint/gimp/PS/etc.)
Time to revive this. I finally took the time to work around the Unity bugs (too new to have been the default, if you ask me), and got it working perfectly.
I got the cube effect enabled, and got the systray to allow all icons (gsettings set com.canonical.Unity.Panel systray-whitelist "['all']")
gsettings set com.canonical.Unity.Panel systray-whitelist "['all']"
It's actually pretty decent now.
And yes... I'm running 11.10... pre-alpha. Love the bleeding edge. :)
rapid1: how do I grab my desktop
Win 7 has the "Snipping Tool". Do a search for it, it's easy to use
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.

My Windows install. Decided to do a fresh install. Nothing exciting. Some server crap for Minecraft and Team Fortress 2 on the desktop. Having a *** getting my wifi card working with Ubuntu so I have not messed with it much. So the desktop is even less exciting than my Windows install.

Hmmm the fail is strong with me tonight. I will give it another try tomorrow.
