Welcome to the Linux - Screenshots forum.


Based on the feedback in this thread, we've created a Linux Screenshots forum to replace the mega threads where screenshots were previously posted. As the forum description mentions, please remember that many members browse LQ from work, so NSFW screenshots are not appropriate.

To those who don't know what NSFW means: it means Not Safe For Work. As in, sexually suggestive (or explicit) stuff, or stuff that kids shouldn't see.

Thanks for keeping LQ family friendly!

Even though you should be working, not looking at screenshots. That alone is NSFW, and could get you in trouble. You have been warned.

Man, now I sound like my father, for whom I work during the day.

Dad: *walks up* Are you working or goofing off?
Me: [Alt]+[Tab] Working.

LOL!

Him: What's that?
Me: *Windows freezes up, with LQ on the screen* Ummmm.........

Yeah..... Now you see why they blocked LQ at work now?

Gnome with a dark theme
I like gnome more than KDE thought suse11.3 is kde centric
The background is the Cassini spacecraft with Saturn and Titan
the position of the three are accurate .I use the planetary naif data and the spacecraft naif data for there locations
give or take 100 Meters
there are more on my picassa page

Pardon me if this seems like an unnecessary question, but…should this thread be stickied? Most (actually all, I think) of the other forums have a stickied "Welcome to forum <x>" thread, or something similar…

Ehrm...does it have to be about stuff ON the screen? If not, this is where I've been on about...how much can you put on this?

BTW - sorry if this may not fit here...

The Linux - Screenshots forum is dedicated to Screenshots, but items such as the one you linked to are still welcome for discussion at LQ, probably in General.

Ehrm...I apologise. In perspective, this post does not add any value to this thread.

I'll take more thought before posting in the future.

Thanks
