I like to think of it as window shopping, I can dream about driving a Porsche even if I only have an old beat-up work truck in the drive. :D

I love metaphors.

I like this desktop, but it is of win7.
It does look very nice! :)

I have a Windows Vista desktop I kind of like the looks of too.

It's a long story why Vista is on that computer but it has all open source applications installed and it's alright.

Thanks lmintnewb! I used the Aero theme and I just got lucky with finding the wallpaper. I found a way to change the welcome screen but it might be risky in Windows.

Here is my favorite desktop.

Gnome 3 works really well for us small netbook users.

I installed Linux Mint, enabled any hardware drivers, installed and configured pidgin, Chrome web browser then followed these instructions to upgrade to gnome 3 :-

This all worked a treat.

I do think that Gnome 3 is very much a 'marmite' desktop (you will either like it or hate it).

Great screen shots diddy1234! I can see gnome 3 working out well on a netbook and your screen shots demonstrate how nice it can look. :) Thanks for explaining how you set this up and how it works for you! Others with netbooks can benefit from your experience. :D Nice work!

Doesn't look too bad with that background. Wonder why i gave up Unity that fast? It just doesn't suit to me. :lol:
