I think it means one version prior to most recent

Not the newest but almost


I could be wrong though

If you mean "Posting desktops",

we are doing this because MasterC started it.

I'd say none. Even the people who have posted their standard RedHat BlueCurve desktop have made some modifications to it.

And many of them don't resemble anything anyone else did. I have seen a lot of things I never would have thought of from this thread.

I bet a lot of total newbs have learned alot about the Linux desktop right here

*edit: Well, the KDE, Gnome, Fluxbox, Blackbox, Window Maker...(you get the point) desktops

what better way to find out what can be done than to see examples that other people have come up with?

it's also a way for people to express themselves.

another answer is: why not?

Fair enough, just seems (IMHO) it would more useful to post copies of startup scripts, or firewall configs. But like I say, thats just MHO
