May I ask what's the sense of posting images of your desktop and then covering the entire thing up with open windows?

"Clean" versus "dirty."  You can see the various elements of the GUI in action versus just a static screenshot showing nothing but a wallpaper and a couple icons.  Gives you a better idea of how it looks in "real life" if you want to use whatever theme/style yourself. Some desktops (Gnome 3 for example) would be really hard to get an idea of how it really looked if you're looking at an empty desktop.

Very nice. What icons are you using, and what Conky theme is that?
