Antergos (Archlinux) GNOME Shell desktop with the Adwaita theme and icons. The wallpaper is from a Prince of Persia game. In addition to Wine, I've developed some scripts that enable me to integrate Windows apps into my Linux desktop via virtualization or remote pc (either option works but virtualization is used in this instance).

Nice. That's a pretty useful-looking solution. :yes: 

 

I'll post mine in a bit.

Here's mine. Same Linux Mint 17.3 install from last October; but I'm running XFCE 4.12 as my daily UI now, interspersed with Nemo and Gnome-Terminal. The theme is still Numix with Faenza icons. Walls are the box standard ones, installable from the repos. I've got it set up exactly the way I want. :yes:

Thanks @Haggis. :) Took a bit of fiddling, but I got it where I was happy with with the layout. The panels are set to intelligently autohide, so it gets out of the way when I need it to.

 

Something I'd like, and what XFCE doesn't do, is provide options for that darned icon spacing on the Desktop. Their approach is "it's a grid, and that's all it ever will be, and you can't change it". Ugh. I truly dislike the way it works and how it looks.

 

I'm going to mess around with Mate next (now that I got a peculiar issue sorted out with my screen resolution) and see how it treats me. All of the recent updates have made it quite a compelling DE. Has everyone seen the strides that the Ubuntu Mate Team have made for the 16.04 release? I have, and it's going to be an impressive release. :yes:

Hey @Clearskies, what's the Music Player and Visualization playing in the Terminal? That looks pretty neat, and I'd like to give that a spin. :yes: 

 

And what's the DE / Theme? I like that very much.

Hey, the music player is ncmpcpp, and I'm not running a DE, so the window manager is just Openbox with a theme I made based on the Numix Openbox theme. If you're interested I could probably upload it somewhere :)

What's the bar at the top? LXDE? Tint?

 

And thanks, I might just take you up on that offer. :yes:

      Canalys: Global PC market saw 25% YoY growth in 4Q20
      by Paul Hill



      The analyst firm Canalys has reported that the global PC market saw 25% year-over-year growth in the fourth quarter of 2020. The firm classifies the PC market as desktops, notebooks (including Chromebooks) and workstations but excludes tablets which are sometimes used by some in place of a full-blown PC. Total PC shipments in 2020 grew by 11% reaching 297 million units.

      The full-year growth in the PC market is the highest that’s been seen since 2020 and the number of units shipped is the highest seen since 2014. The growth in 2020 was driven by laptops and mobile workstations; they saw a growth rate of 44% compared to 2019. Desktops, on the other hand, were less successful with shipments falling 20% compared to 2019; there were 61.9 million shipments in this segment of the market in 2020.

      In the fourth quarter, the biggest PC vendor was Lenovo which shipped 23.1 million units, in second place was HP which shipped 19.1 million units. Dell came in third place shipping more than 15 million units for the first time ever, Apple was in fourth place shipping 7.1 million units and Acer came fifth with 6.1 million units shipped. Other companies shipped a combined 18.9 million units in the fourth quarter.

      According to Canalys Research Director Rushabh Doshi, PCs have been at the centre of the digital transformation that the world has gone through in the past year due to the coronavirus pandemic. Doshi said that going forward it’s going to be “extremely difficult” to write off PCs and that it’s likely that they’re here to stay.
