I know right! I feel that XP was the last good Windows OS Microsoft created.

Re: Show us your desktop

Started up on a projector this morning and someone said  "I see you've finally upgraded to Windows 10 then.........."

Me prefer W7ish look - wallpaper fixed from loginscreen through splash screen to desktop wallpaper

Noto Sans UI plus Liberation Sans for applications

Re: Show us your desktop

My standard response would have been

The box said install windows 10 or better, so I installed Q4OS

Re: Show us your desktop

My desktop. Simple and beautiful. I think, Q4OS 1.8, Orion, is the best release

Yes, Very nice MC, I already use one of your other designs as my regular wallpaper (blueprint) on my dev machines, and now will use your Scorpion wallpaper on my test boxes, thanks for sharing. smile

Re: Show us your desktop

In an attempt to "retire" my old CrunchBang Waldorf, I dual-booted and created a "look-alike" with Q4OS, using Xfce instead of OpenBox. The only visual difference is the CPU meter in the bottom left corner, Q4OS-ORION instead of CRUNCHBANG. (Each letter changes color as CPU usage gets higher.)

Hey, why not? Q4OS strives to be a 2000/XP/7 "look-alike". smile

Re: Show us your desktop

If it helps, you can get rid of the shadow text for the desktop icons.
Rt click Desktop>Configure Desktop>Advanced Options>Uncheck Enable Shadow.
You can also play with the values in Width for Icon Text - I set mine at 120

Good to see another fan of MC - it's been my all time favourite program since I first used it back in 1998.

Re: Show us your desktop

I've updated my desktop since I've been (re)learning trinity and had gotten used to KDE5.  Now with modified system icons in the bourbon menu.  Yes, I'm a fan of the Lotus Esprit V-8.  I actually wanted to get one not long ago but couldn't find a yellow stick shift one for sale anywhere in the US.

Re: Show us your desktop

@MC
Would it be possible to get a copy of the scorpion from your new scorpion wallpaper with a transparent background to overlay on my existing wallpaper (using gimp) I think it looks AWESOME!

EDIT:
Not to worry  @MC, I grabbed it in gimp, but thanks for providing it! smile
Here is my new background, it helps to know I'm in scorpion and my orion desktop is blueprint without the scorpion.
