Best Linuxero Desktop: February 2014

At the request of the public, here is a new call to participate in our monthly competition. The idea is very simple: share a screenshot of your desktop on our social networks and show the world that Linux can also be obtained luxurious and visually appealing desks. Mint or Ubuntu? Debian or Fedora? Arch or openSUSE? ¿Which distros will appear in our Top this month? The best 10 captures will appear in a special post.

Last month's winner: Richie Garcia

linux desktop

Icons: You already know Nitrux
Theme: Flatastic-Orange
Plank: Gingerbread
Distro: of course Manjaro XFCE

How to participate

  1. Get a screenshot of the desktop. To do this, you can use the PrintScreen key (or PrtSc, on English keyboards). It is also possible to use specialized tools, such as Shutter.
  2. Share the capture on our social networks. The different possibilities are:

What should i include

The following should be included as a minimum:

  • 1 desktop capture
  • Distribution
  • Desktop environment
  • Subject
  • Icons
  • desktop wallpaper

It is also recommended to include any description about widgets or other applications used (Conky theme, etc.).

Selection criteria for the top 10 of the month

Generally speaking, the originality, creativity and overall aesthetics of the desktop will be judged.

Although the opinion of our followers will be taken into account, expressed in the amount of +1 o I like it that each catch can accumulate, the selection criteria will be broader:

  • Amount of +1 o I like it
  • Does it include a detailed description so that it can be "copied"?
  • It will try to select diverse desktop environments and distributions

This means that this contest does not automatically reflect the preference of our followers and, eventually, some captures with fewer votes but with a very detailed description (including links, etc.) or that involve little known desktops and / or distributions may appear in the top 10.

Please read the conditions and selection criteria of the contest carefully before commenting or participating.

This same competition will be repeated every month.

The results will be published at the end of the month.
