New Desktop Screenshot Thread

Avehicle7887Then there are workspaces which I believe I've seen in Linux in 2007, that's 11 years ago! To get this feature in Windows (up to 8) you'd have to download a 3rd party program, more than a decade later than Linux, Windows 10 gets one out of the box.

Trust me when I say workspaces have been a standard part of Linux DEs and WMs for far longer than 2007. Even things as ancient as Window Maker and Blackbox have them.

Avehicle7887Do you know the name of the place in the first wallpaper?

It's the Bastei Bridge in Saxon Switzerland (Germany).

And yeah, workspaces have been part of the Linux desktop for a long time already.

Well, X11 has been able to do workspaces since 1990. Thus Linux has effectively "always" been able to do it.

But, we were beaten by the Amiga 1000, which in 1985 supported Workspaces or "Screens" as they called it.

MacOS got support for it next, in 2007 with Mac OS X 10.5.

Windows got proper support for the feature with Windows 10.

Effectively, in this regard Windows lagged way behind. I love how they marketed it like a new feature that's never been done before at the time. Even their fans were saying it.

Cleaned up a lot of old/unused themes and icon packs.

Never has FPS hegemony on my desktop been so threatened, even if the RPGs still number less than half.

So for May you get to see two of my calves as well as my livestock guardian dog Bruno:

It has finally warmed up to the point that I am able to go out and start work on improving the farm again so it seemed appropriate.
