I have it on my craptop, I like to take it to a public place and play with the cube, scale the windows, wobble them about and stick them to the side of the screen to stretch them. You can hear people whispering about it and going "oooooo".

The thing I don't like about it, I never do anything. I'm too busy playing with it, which is why I don't think I will install it on my main PC, even when I do get hardware to support it. (I am getting a new graphics card, it's worth more than my PC. It won't fit in my PC though, so I'll probably use it as an ornament or something, you know how they look nowadays.)

I have the same problem. Since my laptop is my only machine lately, I'll probably just quit my job and become a professional cube-player.
Argh, this is the company laptop...
Darn.

Nope, it's true. You have to be able to understand this though. These people have never even been able to customise their desktops without paying for the privilege (or using cracked software). Just one of the many freedoms a Linux user enjoys, you have to feel sorry those who think there is only one option when it comes to an OS.

I don't feel sorry for them. At least not for those who are happy with it... nobody forces them to not open their eyes. As for the windows users in my company: They come to value linux even though they don't know very much about it. But they know that our file servers and domain controllers are linux machines and they enjoy the fact that everything is running smoothly.
I certainly won't show off the cube to them - it will only get my weekends screwed with installing debian on dozends of private machines...

Knoppix 5.01 with KDE 3.5 and wow what a nice wallpaper!! I think I feel in love with it (I got a widescreen resolution at last, I couldnt seem to get it on Sabayon. It's on my todo list atm though).

I am really starting to like Knoppix.

shrikant.odugoudar, where did you find the icons for that little panel at the bottom? The Firefox icon looks positively deranged - in a funny, comical way.

Search for 'Buff' iconset at Gnome-Look.org.

That little panel is called 'Kiba-dock', very customisable and cool.

Here's a screenshot of my personal custom box. Running Windows Maker.

Got to love the simplicity of WM. No messy desktop, no ridiculous application menu. =)
