So how does your Mac desktop look?
If you got a special wallpaper, please add the url to this as well.

Man, I wish I could make slick icons like that haha. Nah, I just picked out the apps I had in my dock all the time and searched on DeviantArt for black versions, just picked the best ones. I could export that set to an iContainer and give it to you if you like, via PM or email. Just let me know if you want it. =]

It's winter time, so I'm using Snowplane. That's what the white dots are. Unfortunately, I don't think it's available any more.

And yes, that is a Bartelme wallpaper.

Wow ... looks like I can't post any images or links because I'm a "New Member" and need to be "more active" after posting an undisclosed amount of topics. Does anyone know how many that is? (I couldn't even type in a link without the <a href> tag)

Anyway, if you'd like to copy and paste the following link into another browser (really quick, I know) here's my desktop:
"farm4.static.flickr.com/3467/3269492986_50c825468f.jpg"


I also find lots of great desktop images are also at "desktopography.net/".

I have a few more icons than I like, and a bunch of applications locked to the dock, which is normally hidden.

skitch.com/stevenfoe/br8bi/desktop

Like some earlier people, I can't post a link or photo.  Just copy/paste that and it will work.

I have seen several apps in peoples docks that I don't recognize, perhaps it is time for a new thread.

EDIT:  BTW, I downloaded the wallpaper directly from the Apple site somewhere.

It's been interesting to see everyone's dock as well...to see what apps people use. I see some overflow, people who keep all apps in the dock, but interestingly, I don't see a lot of launchbar. Is there a way to hide it so it doesn't show in the dock, or do people actually not use it much?

I don't use it at all. Apple+spacebar works well enough for me.

When I first got an iMac, I somehow discovered this wallpaper for Propellerhead Software's Reason and, try as did, my eyes could not get used to a different one. I became so attached that I kept it on my 17" MBP and am still unable to change it.

As you can see by the dock, I sometimes get carried away with my apps, just launching every conceivable app that might come in handy in the next month or so.

The best part is that even with, let's see . . . 33 applications open, (including Final Cut and Logic Express), my lappy doesn't slow down a hair. I like to think he considers it a healthy work out.

This is the only screenshot I could find of my old computer, back when I was running 10.4.
I got a new computer around the same time I upped to 10.5, and I haven't really modded the appearance that much. I did change the scroll bars to be the same as ones used in iTunes and iLife, essentially killing Aqua on my computer.
I miss modding. *sniff*
