or you can try a live cd (boots straight from the CD so you don't actually install the OS). It won't touch your Windows install at all

This link is to a mirror for Kororaa (it is no longer officially distributed by them because they aren't really allowed to include proprietary ATi and nVidia drivers), you just need a fairly decent nVidia or ATi graphics card and preferebly >256MB RAM.

i don't think the beta (or rc1) has xgl/compiz pre-installed cos of the drivers not being open issue.

the first link i gave was a download mirror

http://iso.linuxquestions.org/version.php?version=327

then just burn the disk image, heres how to do it in nero, i'd imagine other cd burning apps are pretty similar

then just put it in and reboot, and hopefully in a couple of mins you will have a nice 3d eye candy desktop. It may not run quite as fast/smooth as a installed one, i dunno i've not tried it - it should give you an indication though

oh, these threads are so fun. I might even help the necromancy along :p

Current which I've not had time to fix up since re-installing about a month ago.

December's which I was just getting used to before my laptop went to the shop

This is what I had for a few months before that. And with stuff opened it looked about like this

You folks have some fine looking desktops. My desktop sort of changes with my mood, coming from a file I keep full of photographs I trip across on the net--- such as this one.

The second desktop is a little revealing. At the bottom of the screen, you'll see the app I keep handy for dealing with all these icons for the "important" stuff I dare not put into any folder, as well as the shortcuts I can't bear to be without. One touch changes what I see... This is running WinXP SP2 Home Ed. as an O.S. on a desktop PC...

I can see a lot of bugs crawling on your desktop ;)

You wouldn't believe that this desktop is over a year old by just looking at it. I keep the icons hidden and the icon tray clean. I can't sit stand sitting down to a messy computer.

Here's my re-skinned and, if I say so myself, rather sexy desktop.

And where do you get those programs that put a weather forecast thingy on your desktop? Could someone drop me a link to a good desktop software site?
