Share your desktop, what does it look like?

Well that is an absolute beast indeed, way more than what I'll probably ever need :smiley: I picked this one because I found it to be the perfect balance between power and portability. I even picked the lowest option available (i5 and Intel Iris Xe) which quite honestly is enough for me.

Dude, thats a nice computer too! Its using a 11th gen I7 CPU with 4 cores and 8 threads. You have a whopping 64GB of RAM, which is enough to run multiple VM's, or do a massive ton of photo production lol.

You know, I remember back when I was on my old computer, I was able to max out the 16GB of RAM, just having several RAW photo's loaded in GIMP at once. I actually got an error message from GIMP saying no I can't do that Dave. Its like, dang it Hal! HAHA!

This is what influenced me to accept that I should get 32GB of RAM for my next computer, which is of course what I did, and I have never run into a running out of RAM issue again lol. Anyways, I also like the fact your computer has a GTX 1650 in it, which is a really solid mid-range card, awesome!

Have you kept up how difficult it is for gamers to get video cards for their desktop builds? Ya, its been an ongoing problem for 2 years now, going on 3 if this business keeps up lol. We notebook owners are the winner winner chicken dinners here hehe.

I also like the fact that your computer has a thunderbolt 4 port, you know why thats excellent? Cause, if you decide you want to get into heavier gaming that your notebook GPU can provide, no problem! You can buy a external GPU enclosure, stick the next standard desktop GPU into it, I'm guessing it will be from the 4000 series perhaps, and walla, your gaming hardcore lol.

I actually like your machine, so it gets StarTreker's approval for best value mid-grade gaming machine. And remember, not just gaming, but that thing can do 1440P video production, as well as photo. Excellent!

I actually didn't know what I could use the thunderbolt 4 port for, but even without playing many games myself this is always good to know, thanks for that tip. I want to try Civ VI and see how it does.

I picked this laptop with "only" 16GB RAM which is plenty for me. I'm not a designer and only occasionally open up GIMP or Inkscape to edit a little something. I mostly do text editing and browsing, and I do use virtual machines sometimes as well, which I could still handle with my previous 8GB RAM. I even throttled the CPU's max frequency to about half when I'm unplugged so that the battery lasts longer :smiley:

Just to keep this on topic I'll post another live wallpaper that I think looks great:

You may like my photo I entitled 'Glade Runner' :wink:

Take your time not trying to rush you as it takes a lot of work to develop those Icons .... I'm sure glad you and Aravisian opened up a whole new world for me ..... putting together Themes ..... something I never could have done in Win .... and it is fun even though I have to use the work of other people .... glad you guys like to share ....


no problem. My work pays for Findus' deluxe food and imported litterbox sand :slight_smile:


Remember to requests icons - cuz' noone else does, regrettably.


I used to go to a lot of work custom theming everything, but its quicker and easier to just install Star Labs theme and be done with it. It installs by one quick PPA, and I just choose it with Tweaks. And it alone brings an improvement to vanilla Zorin OS.

Inspired by @Am.Shekari wallpapers, I made some simple icons to fit a minimalism desktop.


I already did... and err, I might just go for another little tiny request. It's actually for the Brave browser logo. I saw the other day another icon theme (which unfortunately I lost track of) where only the face of the lion was visible, and taking the full width/height of the logo.


So like in this example here, the black part which is the face would become the whole icon, discarding the hair around it.

Just a thought as I can see how this might go a bit against the overall style for the rest of the icons.

Thanks, cheers!

That wallpaper is excellent :+1: I think that's what Gateway wanted to achieve, but became a bloated Holstein cow instead, who's weight alone, crushed the company.

Most people don't even know who they are anymore, cause they became irrelevant like, 20-years ago. :joy:

Anyways, it's nice to see you making icons with wallpapers. You do good work as always. Hey, do they call it Brave browser cause you got to be free to use it? :rofl:

If you can find the icon theme or picture of it, it would be great.
