Currently on My Desktop 20081101

When I was in University, I was a total Linux geek. What’s worse, I was a total Linux X11 window manager geek. That’s fancy talk for someone who likes to tweak with, basically, desktop themes. ((To my geek audience, I know I’m grossly oversimplifying things. I’ll have you know I had an FVWM2 configuration that was hundreds of lines long and involved its own hand-made theming solution, was a Blackbox-derivative hardass for a while, and then was converted to the love of tabbed window bars in TVWM.

Just two desktops, the busiest ones right now, because I’m busy hacking S∂’s theme (sssshh).

A bit picture-spammy, so I’m putting the rest of this article behind the cut.
