    Controls / Window border are AlphaCube, and the icon theme is Vista Inspirate 1.0. I believe you can find all of them in gnome-look.org :)

    Icons are very nice! I won't comment on window borders. Only thing I don't like is the font that you're using.

    My desktop as of yesterday. What I like in this theme is the crispy colors and fresh feel. A really nice combo to start a day with ;)

    Fedora on my laptop... math, music and some pictures to show some stuff I work with on my laptop. I used to be an Ubuntu fan, and even experimented with SUSE at time, but since FC5 release I haven't looked elsewhere.

    My current Linux Desktop

    Running ATI Linux 8.26.18 drivers and Linux kernel 2.6.17.1.

    I can run "X" now with "extmod" enabled but Xine would crash. So I have extmod" disabled.

    Boring desktop for now, I just installed my first linux (ubuntu) today so I'm a complete n00b, but so far I'm loving it and got most of my help from reading the threads in this section. Cheers.
