FreeBSD 8.2-STABLE on my X60s. Compiling Chromium because my bank doesn't work with Opera. WindowMaker because KDE is really slow anymore.

My X30 runs Fedora 14 and a standard Gnome desktop, nothing really out of the ordinary.

I'm looking for a good background that's not too flashy and not too dark and gloomy, but I haven't been able to find one. My current desktop picture is the blue default background that has THINK in the bottom right.

I'll revive the thread now that I've got Gnome 3.2 working to my liking on Ubuntu 11.10. :)

This is an X200. You can see it in its docked setup in the image within the screenshot (on the right).

SchlageR, that's a nice wall paper. I have the blue version. Could you send me that darker one? It like it much better.

@Bub McZombieFace, I wasn't sure what resolution you wanted so i used your windows 8 wallpaper for reference (1680x1050), just right click and "save as" Hope it helps you!

I love those Apple keyboards. They are so easy to type on.

Gnome 3.2 doesn't look too shabby. I think I will try it out.

I fear that it was this Apple Keyboard that may have been causing my "Stuck Key" errors w/ my dock. That and the fact that there is no Insert key is infuriating since I seemingly use Insert a lot!
