    Here's mine. I like the loneliness of the scene, the moon, and the contrast it gives my icons placed around the edges:

    I ask the computer to "stretch" it and that compresses the vertical scales a few degrees.
    In this version I resized it to 741 pixels wide to fit here.

    I have had a few ask me how to capture the "screen shot" of my desktop. Whatever page or screen you have open if you hit the "Prt Sc" or under it says "Sys Rq" ( two commands on one key) upper right of the keyboard next to "Num Lock".

    Anyway if you hit that button on the screen or any web page then open "Paint" ( Start-- "all programs"-- "accessories"-- then "Paint") when you have the paint program open hit your Control Key ( CTRl) plus the letter V. Or Right click your mouse and paste..... you will see that the web page or your desk top is now there in front of you.

    Click File and save as... then upload to your Image hosting site. I change mine to JPEG from Bitmap ...

    Click-- Prt Sc
    Open-- Paint
    Paste into paint program
    Save
    Upload

    Hope that helps. Feel free to PM me again if those instructions are unclear! :redface:

    In Ubuntu there are two easy ways, use the Print-Screen (Prt Sc) button on your keyboard and it pops up the dialog to let you save it automatically, or in your Applications menu, under Accessories there's an applet that allows to to take screen-shots of your whole screen, desktop, or just one window.

    First ... Ubuntu is a Linux kernel OS with Gnome and KDE GUI ... a great replacement if you are tired of Windoze. It's growing in popularity and is completely free, the name given is African meaning something like "community". It's based on Open Source and released under the GNU license. You can try it for free at no risk if you want, just search or go to ubuntu.com for more info.

    As for mu desktop ... it's Lumiere from Kiddy Grade, a really cool anime I like, and she reminds me of myself in a lot of ways.
