My desktop is a complete and utter mess. Wallpapers change every half hour and I have about 30 that swap around.

I'd always wanted to have a clean desktop. I can just hit the Window key and access the most frequently used programs, but if it aren't there, I just search for it by typing the program I'm looking for, select a program that's in the search result, hit Enter, and I'm there. The next time I need to access a program, it's already in the most frequently used programs list.

I've made Start menu as my friend and made myself comfortable for me to easily live without icons in my desktop. I rarely click in the icons in the desktop for a very long time.

Here's my sleek, but plain desktop, in XFCE. I'm running Xubuntu 11.04 with KXStudio installed.

If I hover my mouse to the left edge of the screen:

As you can see, mine is pretty much elegant and clutter-free. Access to my applications is via right-click, so there's no need for a "Start" menu or Ubuntu 11.04's classic "Applications" menu in the panel. If I click in the Firefox icon, I can see the list of running applications, which can also be done by middle-clicking in the desktop.

A composite background of 10 minutes with a thunderstorm rolling in. Stupid thing saw the camera and quit. :-( Yes, this is my background, but I didn't capture the desktop overlay this time.
