If you don't want to get win8.1, there're a few tools you can get that extend the taskbar onto the second monitor. The one I used when I used Windows 7 was UltraMon. You won't regret getting it.

Also, make the icons smaller, they don't really need to be that huge, do they?

I use WinSplit Revolution to resize/move windows. I did have Ultramon once upon a time, so I suppose I found it inferior. I don't want the taskbar extended. The only icons supposed to be on my desktop are Computer, Network, Documents and Recycle Bin. That all the other shit has accumulated is unadulterated laziness. I don't see why they should be smaller. There's not supposed to be a shortage of space and given the current state of my desktop they're a useful size for content thumbnails.

You don't have to squint, that's the point.

Developers and Linux sysadmins spend all day, every day looking at plain text. In the Linux world, everything is a file, and nearly everything is plain text. Linux isn't so much a monolithic bit of software, but a kit of parts, designed to be endlessly configured and reconfigured by using shell commands or scripts to pipe the output of one program to the input of another, often in long chains. Unix-derived operating systems like Linux are designed on the basis of a sophisticated philosophy of computing.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unix_philosophy

The primary input device for a serious Linux user is the keyboard, with the mouse only being used for things like web browsing. Most of these guys use a text editor like vim or emacs, that has no graphical interface to speak of but a very sophisticated set of commands and keyboard shortcuts that allow for very complex editing operations to be performed with ease. The commands for these editors have to be memorised, but provide exceptional speed and fluency.

From that perspective, anything you can do to strip away clutter and visual distraction is a win. All you're trying to do is get text in and out of your brain as efficiently as possible. There's no reason why you wouldn't just opt for a black background with the bare minimum of window dressing.

I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you’re referring to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/Linux, or as I’ve recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX.

Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU which is widely used today is often called “Linux”, and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the GNU system, developed by the GNU Project. There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use.

Linux is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine’s resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Linux is normally used in combination with the GNU operating system: the whole system is basically GNU with Linux added, or GNU/Linux. All the so-called “Linux” distributions are really distributions of GNU/Linux.

I use a 24" monitor, so it's not as squinty as it looks. And as >>21738 says, it' pretty much the most efficient means of displaying the information I need. In that particular shot (>>21734) the only thing I'd rather have as something more graphical is iftop (the bottom left two frames), but the hassle of launching a separate program and tiling it nicely into the desktop just for brief bandwidth monitoring far outweighs the benefits of a clearer display.

I can't tell if you're trolling, in need of /emo/ or youthfully sincere but in a nutshell: sysadminy things. I use a combination of terminator, tmux and screen to open terminals (persistent and ad-hoc) to keep an eye on things beyond what nagios, ganglia, kibana and friends report. It doesn't require a CS degree, it's more of a janitorial job. See pic attached. It's obvious hyperbole, but the sentiment is spot on.

I had a photograph I had taken as a wallpaper, but alas it was lost in the Great Hard Disk Failure of 2010. It was a photograph of a train passing underneath the bridge I was standing on, taken at dusk on an overcast day with the flash disabled. I was rather pleased with the result.

Thanks lad. They really managed to hide the xfce/xubuntu option menu in this release eh? I'm sure it was more prominent in 12.04? It also looks like I have to rm my .config etc dirs before the change will take effect? It worked immediately when I used the guest login, but my own user stayed resolutely on xubuntu styling. I'll play around with it anyway, thanks again lad.

Stuck on my faithful XP netbook at the moment. I'll be impressed if anyone can tell me the reference, made it myself.

I don't mean to toot my own trumpet but I have plenty in the bank, I know I want a powerful tower, I just don't know what I particularly want to acheive that. I do some FL Studio, as my netbook can only barely handle that, never mind Ableton, I also want to game but am on shitty internet can't be downloading 10Gb games every week, along with a bit of GIMP, since I can't run PS.
