I must admit having icons all over my screen would really bug me, other than the programs I use regularly it's pretty empty which suits me fine, I tend towards smaller images on a black background than something which covers the whole screen mostly :)

This sort of nonsense makes me cringe. If you're not going to use your desktop, go back to DOS imo.

This is actually pretty tame, I just cleaned it up a couple weeks ago. Once the icons spill onto the second monitor, it's go time

It's not use of icons that I don't like. It's the huge amount of them. All those .jpgs on your desktop? Make a folder! organize it! I'm pretty sure any library would be jealous of the amount of file organizing on my pc.
I personally don't use any icons because that's why god made task menu's and docks but I'm not against them as long as they're organized.

Same here. On my computers I generally keep a file under my name, which splits into university, images, photos and movies
which then splits into year1,2,3, masters and phd, etc etc etc

Its 20x easier to find anything I need, over my gf's organisation which is basically a "dump everything on screen" motto.

Also, having a keyboard with 12 macro buttons helps... when I'm in desktop button 1 is WoW, 2 is minecraft, 3 is Shogun 2, 4 is DA:2 etc

It beats having to look through 5 mins worth of stuff to find the importand assignment thats due tomorrow

Once the icons spill onto the second monitor, I put them in the appropriate folder. In the mean time, most all of the files I work with get shared across multiple programs. (Photoshop, Imageready, Animation Master, After Effects, FTP, browser; uploading, downloading, etc.) Of course, larger projects have their own directories. But little incidental stuff is much easier to find by just hitting command-D (desktop) in the appropriate dialogue.

ps, :3

Why should I go back to DOS? I never ever use my desktop... when my win7 starts thunderbird opens and I see my emails - next things I start are Total Commander (file commander way better than the explorer^^) and Firefox... everything I want and need is accesible from the Win7 taskbar (sticky icons are fabulous!!) or the quick search of the "Start-Button"... I had the default win-background 1 year without noticing it at all.
Same reasons apply to the desktop widget - cool idea but I would never see them - so why have them?
I can understand other people use the desktop heavily (the mom of my gf stores everything there ... ugh!) and I personaly enjoy a CLI but I don't want to go back to DOS (full-time^^).

Bye, RedAces.
