Let's post our desktops and rate each others. Feel free to help post your ricing and any configs that you want.

My work setup is Manjaro Linux and uses a hybrid of Xfce4/AwesomeWM in order to keep it lightweight whilst not destroying the wacom driver. I have two taskbars to handle workspaces, current song playing (MPD) and statuses at a glance. My Development laptop uses i3.

Firefox follows a similar dark theme:

Terminals handle music, files and task manager.

Finally, Krita for my artwork.

Feel free to post your desktops and ask questions about ricing!

I only really use Rainmeter. I'm working on customising my desktop a little more, I'm going to combine this current skin (NXT-OS) with the Enigma skin, see if I can work out a really nice flow with them.

I would change my taskbar to be more like the OSX taskbar but that's one of the things I dislike about that OS - but then again, I don't like the way the Windows taskbar looks either. It's too chunky and intrusive, I'm gonna try and figure something out.

I've got an old-ish LCD tv (the bigger desktop) which actually works surprisingly well as a second monitor. I've also got a theme I made up on Windows 8 which cycles through a few other space-related photos but for some reason Windows 10 doesn't let you create or edit themes yourself, which is a bit crap because I've seen a few more photos I wanted to add to it. :\

My wallpapers cycle every 15 minutes (so each monitor has a wallpaper for an hour). Custom Rainmeter colored with a plugin I wrote:

I have another monitor, but I only turn it on when I need it, light off to the side of where I'm looking annoys me for some reason.

Why's it still called ricing if it's for desktop customization? I thought the term was only used for souped up Asian import cars :V

My older main PC:

Screenshot-22.thumb.png.62cc700b97a385cc

The dockapps are nautilus, asclock, wmmail, wmdrawer, wmweather+, wmsun, wmmoonclock, xchat, firefox, gnome-dictionary (though I may change it later), wmload, and docker holding stalonetray.  The clip apps are virtualbox, amaya, and wmxmms2.  Running in the background below Firefox is TTYtter in two terminal windows; the AD one is blocked from view.

Whenever i use Linux, I keep tending to drift back to Window Maker no matter what window manager or desktop environment I try.

I made progress with combining the two themes I mentioned, I think it looks quite nice with Windows 10. It needs some more work I think, but I'll sort it out.

This is my laptop. The desktop is much messier because I don't use it as often as my home desktop and I throw my school files on the desktop for convenient access.

Please excuse me for the slight icon spam and... norton (it's pretty much forced upon me against my will).

I tried Rainmeter and had no clue how to get that shit working even with the tutorials. So I just keep the default Win7. f262db5dbf6dbe6def8676c13911d635.thumb.j

I actually do my best to keep the blue and black theme consistent from the desktop to the lighting on my mouse and keyboard as well. That and

this is simply an outstanding and beutiful backround

Had an overhaul of my colours since dark is so summer. Since I was happy with the Material aesthetic on my phone, I decided to hack together a theme script to give a similar feel.
