Post your Ubuntu Desktop.



Mines very basic at the moment, I've only just installed it on an old laptop.

Ubuntu 10.10

Post yours and try to give information on any plugins, themes and whatnot so the thread doesn't get cluttered.

The gnome panel on the left with dockbarX doesn't look as good as the actual Unity launcher but i like having a dock on the left.

Why did you switch? Which version of OS X were you running before? I'm very curious why anyone would do this?

I also went from OS X to Ubuntu, But only because my Mac died, And i started using a old HP laptop that i had. I will probably be getting a Mac again soon.

Is Linux a full POSIX system - following standards or ?

Not fully POSIX compliant, like AIX, Solaris or Mac OS X post-Leopard, but certainly close enough for government work. I mean, it's not like someone's going to pay to get any one Linux distro IEEE/SUS certified. That process is ludicrously expensive.

Only Ubuntu?

Thumb resize.
Running Mandriva on my DIY NAZ box, serving up tons of files, backups, and a Subsonic server.

Headless. VNC login. Kept a GUI around simply because it takes me 1/10th the time to make any change or do anything directly on the server- though I use the occasional SSH, and I use webmin.

One word: software. Most important business software only runs on Windows. Pointy-haired bosses like paying for software because that gives them someone outside of the company to blame with things go wrong with the computers so that they catch less heat.
