Jack will complain that this is so '98, but the task-bar's just auto-hidden (right click -> properties).

Minimalism all the way, dawg. 8)

my desktop is messy. Everytime i clean it up it just becomes a mess again. Making templates for people all the time just does this to me. I hate having to sift through 10 files to save somthing so alot of stuff stays on my desktop.

The desktop of my latest-purchased machine . My desktops get cluttered very quickly :( But then again, this laptop is called 'workhorse' for a reason.

The pain. It hurts. OH THE PAIN.

The hardware kicks ass, though.

I never really understood the fetish for "clean" or nearly clean desktops. It seems to me that the computer is easiest to use when there's a balance struck between the number of useful tools in open view and the desire for a "clean" (I prefer the word "barren") desktop.

My deskop is only clean like that because I hate a deskop with a plethora of icons. However, that is not to say that the icons are fully hidden. First, on my right is a menubar containing all the shortcuts from the folder 'shortcuts' on my deskop.

All my files and such that I use the most will be under 'Programs', where you'll find such catagories as 'Installs', 'Digital', 'Lightwave', etc. Then its sub-organised; for example, under Digital, you've got 'Images' (i.e. Digital Pics I've taken with my digital camera), and 'Movies' (i.e. taken with my digital camcorder).

Since windows allows you to select a folder/file by typing the first few letters of it, It allows me to navigate to items in about 3 seconds, which is probibally the same time it would take someone to locate an Icon on a deskop with a few hundred on them ;)

Its not really a 'fetish', its just being really organised. Plus, it leaves more room for the deskop pic!
