I wondered yesterday if I would update my mint to 12 Lisa. But then, everything works well with Julia, so decided not to update before Mint 13 LTS.

My desktop looks nowadays like this:

A very minimalist desktop, with a simple Conky Mint setup. I like keeping my desktop squeaky clean. First time really customizing a Linux install as well as first time using Conky, so it's still a work in progress at the moment.

Ok, so by the suggestion of someone else on a different forum I've moved my Conky over a little, trying my best to center it between last letter and right side.

I think it actually does look better this way now.

Ginsu543 very nice, creative desktops! Can u explain a little about what you used to get that awesome look on your Firefly screens?

Thanks for your kind words! As far as the Firefly screen goes, that's just VLC playing a video file of an episode of Firefly (I just paused it at the title screen so I could take a screenshot). I used the Window Decoration tool in CompizConfig Settings Manager to remove the window borders, and then turned off the "Embed video in interface" setting in VLC preferences. I also used the Opacity, Brightness and Saturation tool as well as Trailfocus to adjust the transparency of Nautilus and Terminal windows. Nothing too fancy; they were all done through CompizConfig Settings Manager. Rounding out the look is Tint2 at the bottom of the screen and Conky under the sofa. :D

Love the Plasmoids on your GNOME3 desk. I didn't know the combination was even possible.

Thanks for the reply and info. And even though it was mostly done through Compiz, it's still pretty creative and looks very cool!!

Yeah, it's fun to trick out your desktop for a photo-op, but I myself usually simplify it back down for my day-to-day use. :D
