Dead Parrot's desktops


I was looking at the screenshot archives and saw a desktop I really like. It was Dead Parrot's that has "apt-get into it" in the middle. What desktop is that? Is the jigsaw puzzle a theme? If it is, does it come with the desktop, or does it have to be downloaded from somewhere else? I am currently running gnome, but would like to run this one.

Thanks,

Tons of Fun

I'm glad you liked the screenshot. It's made from bits and pieces that I've picked up from here and there. Luckily I can still remember the site where I found the wallpaper (look under the section "Debian"):

Thank you very much. What are you using as a window manager? I am using GDE, but I heard there was another one that is much faster and less bloated.

In the screenshot I'm using Window Maker. You can see some info (like what distro and window manager is used) under each screenshot.
