Maah! Desktop

With GNU/Linux systems you can have a highly customizable desktop with no bounds to possibilities. I have discussed few techniques for a nerdy looking environment in my Feeling Geeky... post earlier. Well this one is just a snapshot preview kinda thing... concentrating mainly on the eye candy stuffs..

Distro : Ubuntu Hardy Heron 8.04
Desktop Environment : GNOME
Window Manager : Metacity/Compiz-Fusion/Fluxbox

I have used Mac4Lin Themes/Skins by Anirudh

Compiz Fusion :

Cube Effect
Window Decoration
Shift Switcher

Random Shots:

Python Programming

Build your own desktop, use this links :

I use pre tag.. its quite easy to use and very handy for bloggers..

Here is the syntax :

<pre class="alt2" dir="ltr" style="border: 1px inset ; padding: 6px; overflow: auto; width: 50px; height: 20px; text-align: left;">your text</pre>
