A bunch. The last time xs.to acted up I used www.uploadandgo.com for a few images, apart from a 1MB size limit it seems to be ok.

Why would you remove the explorer menu? Its one of the most useful features of Win7 IMO.

I found a small program to ax the start button for even more space.

Personally I use the Explorer menu more than the Start menu. Your loss, I guess.

Why do people blur out thier taskbar, are they that embarrased about what Windows they have open? :P

If you want it to be secure you need to black it out. There are ways of discovering what text existed before a blur.

Nico1980, I approve of your shortcut to a folder called "troep".

Oh and here is mine.


I clean it up and managed to get nothing on it but as usual entropy has caused things to move back onto it.

Thanks, guys. I got the second screen as a Christmas gift to myself. It's so convenient, having documentation on one and a shell on the other, etc. etc.

I'm very very tempted to pick up a third.

Thought I'd follow Kaboon's lead and try out Fedora 10 with KDE.

But, but, glossy = good.

I wonder what'll be the next fad. We had fake metal (OSX), plastic (XP), glass (Vista), what's left? Wood? Leather? Velvet? Denim? Nah, Windowblinds already did all of these.

The start menu is very similar to Vista's with KDE on Red Hat. Much more so than with Debian.

So far, I'm running into more snags with this distro than the previous ones.

I had a hard time adjusting to Fedora too, so (with the help of a friend) I went back to Ubuntu. It just wasn't worth the hassle.

I was thinking patience and a new pc would solve the problems, but I'm already considering going back to Ubuntu as well. About the only good thing that was readily noticeable was that Firefox 3 works better with it.
