Honestly, my desktop is boring.
Ubuntu MATE 20.04 on a Raspberry Pi 4 (2GB) via VGA666 adapter.
It's the default wallpaper because I don't see it often.

Tnx for leaving a comment Junxiao Shi

Bro, I can't believe that you don't like to have a cool desktop ...
It doesn't take any time, dash to dock and an amazing theme could be a game changer for you...

I love that part that your wallpaper is the default cause you don't see it, hahahahaha.

And let me know whenever you want to accept a push-up challenge and racing with me. ;)

Keep it up

I don't have a "dash to dock" button on this desktop. Such a button is an applet that consumes memory. Memory is tight on the RPi 2GB.

My 8GB laptop and 3GB Android phones have Bing Daily Wallpaper or similar apps, although they only work half of the time. Even on those, I don't pay attention to the wallpaper.


As of peeps push-ups, since I completed #22PushupsChallenge in 2016, the only quantity I can do is 22.

my desktop

OS is Linux, distro is Kubuntu, desktop therefore Plasma, and theme is Breeze-Dark, though I made some changes in a lot of corners over time.

The background image changes daily, I collected a few hundred over the years from various sources.

Thank you riidom for sharing your nice desktop :)
I love Kubunu, you know what?
it was working on my 11 years old Dell inpiron 1420 smoothly, I couldn't believe it .

To be honest KDE Plasma was on of the coolest desktops I've ever used, but when it comes to dash to dock and customization I don't really like it.
I prefer Gnome for this purpose.
I was working with most of the distros, but after I switched to Pop!_OS I think there's no reason to change my distro..
So damn amazing ...
Have ya ever used Pop!_OS?
if no, just give it a shot, You'll love it...

Keep it up ;)

Hey, welcome! And haven't used Pop!OS yet. I'm really not much of a distro hopper.

I started with Linux Mint on an old laptop (to get my first contact sort of). When I switched on my desktop, I first used Ubuntu/Unity, and I totally loved that one. As it got EOL'ed, I been using it for a year more or so, because I couldn't decide! Then I got a hint from someone I met at a party at work, and went with Kubuntu.

I'm really not much of a (pure) GNOME guy :) But when something will make me switch again, Pop!OS is definitely my No.1 candidate, I heard so much good of it.

Yeah, I was a Kubuntu fan too ;)
KDE Plasma was working so damn good on my 11 Years Old Dell Inspiron 1420 laptop.
But after I bought a new Laptop, I thought it could be fun to play around with Linux Distros, and finally I found Pop!_OS so cool.
Happy Coding ;)
Tnx Riidom for leaving a comment :)

Happy to hear that, if you want to get more familiar with the Terminal and commands read The Linux Command Line By William Shotts, I guarantee that you'll become a Terminal monster!

I'm following you, write posts about your journey in #100DaysOfCode, we are here to support each other.

Hey eboye, thank you for sharing your cool desktop, if you have enough time just take a screenshot from your Gnome desktop, cause Linux desktops are my fav all the time.

Just a question... I've read all the comments here, and all I see is

  • give Linux a shot!
  • have you ever tried Linux
  • why not Linux?

Why?

Collapse

Banji

Hahahaha, Cause I'm a big fan of Linux, open-source community and Linux is awesome for developers.
I can't believe that some of the developers have not even touched Linux in their life...
So that's interesting for me to ask that kind of question from everyone.
So, now ;)
It's your turn...
Have you ever tried Linux?
Hahahaha
Keep it up bro
Take it easy
Good Luck :))

On windows you can press the windows key and type what you want, and you get it. There's also powertoys.

For linux tools like grep, xargs, etc. I have busybox installed via scoop. If I need a proper linux system, there's WSL2, or worst case, ssh into a linux machine. Not a fan of linux desktops though.

I found the Scoop interesting, gonna share with my friends who are working with windows.

Ahaha, I would, but from personal experience, there have been much too many times where I took a screenshot and accidentally exposed a piece of personal data. I'm very strict on that stuff, no matter how trivial it is!
