    Don't even know…. next time will be

  3.   kishimoto said

    Have a GNU / Linux that looks like windows ¬_¬

  4.   Tiguer Vieight said

    The desktop with wallpaper and windows 7 start menu is the best, but I would change the startup for Ubuntu and the wallpaper for a Linux one

  5.   Eduardox123 said

    It is sarcasm right?

  6.   Ivan Escobares said

    I think the cutest of all is number 4 .. 10 is very funny ..

    The two not to mention ..

  7.   Anon said

    Who makes the choice of catches? There are huge varieties that are much better and they put catches like No. 6? is anything! XD

  8.   Emanuel J. Charry said

    Thank you very much for hanging mine. But there is an important correction, they put information from another desktop. This is the one that really goes:
    Operating system: Ubuntu 13.04
    Desktop environment: Gnome 3.6
    Icons: Faenza -> http://bit.ly/a8QJ7h
    Shell Theme: Zukiwi -> http://bit.ly/1598C8S
    Conky: Gray Scale, with RAM, WLAN and CPU -> http://bit.ly/18sVn4Q
    Docky: Panel + HUD
    Wallpaper: Dulcet -> http://bit.ly/13UfTKz
    Just in case, notice, what I'm referring to is number 4.

  9.   Jonas Trinidad said

    I liked the captures! They are all great well, almost all, what the hell were they thinking with number 6? It's the same desktop with Cairo Dock, not even custom.

    Even many Unity desktops had a better Look ...

  10.   Let's use Linux said

    You have to keep trying ...

  11.   Felipe Gonzalez said

    Everything is for one objective, have a good time, it's good that it has gone out twice 🙂 // The other desks are very nice 😀

  12.   Nyx said

    How come the 9 with kde has conky? I've never been able to set it right in kde D;

  13.   Nasher_87 (ARG) said

    … It's like shooting yourself in the foot with a sawed-off shotgun hurts a lot but it's your fault.

  14.   BlackBit said

    Well number 2 ...

  15.   Xabier corleone said

    How do you get the conky as in the first capture?
    I have the latest version of manjaro with gnome-shell

    I don't know how to configure the conky config script ...

  16.   Joseph said

    Personally, the one I like the most is 5, for me it is the most spectacular, although the rest are very good too, for the next edition he participated !!!!!!!

  17.   Solidrugs Pacheco said

    I feel that they did not bother to see all the captures, I saw many and better in G + published among them mine 😛 and it is not courage that it is not left, but mine was better than 6 https://securecdn.disqus.com/uploads/mediaembed/images/510/188/original.jpg

  18.   Tiguer Vieight said

    It is my opinion for me it is the best but I am not going to disguise Linux with windows things is like being a chevrolet incha buying a ford and replacing the ford logo with the chevrolet one. I hope you are not so intransigent and accept my opinion

  19.   Teniazo. said

    I liked the 5 and 9. Anyway, I prefer mine that did not appear.

  20.   Teniazo. said

    The 9 with another wallpaper.

  21.   Felipe Gonzalez said

    it is a chunk !!!

  22.   Felipe Gonzalez said

    Hahahaha that desktop was a shit that occurred to me, I only use it on my notebook again xD besides feeling attacked by some lalalal users

  23.   Let's use Linux said

    We look at them all, seriously. You don't have to take it so personally. Yours is really very good. In general we try to maintain a certain diversity in terms of distros, environments, etc. Sometimes we do it better and sometimes we don't. This time, for example, most of the contributions were unfortunately not very descriptive. It was not like that in previous months. Not to lower your arms and continue participating.
    I send you a hug! Paul.

    Calm down my friend! It is not for you to take it personally, one thing is for one to disagree and another is to judge. You already hit the second one ... In my case it is not and »For using Unity»: p But I will arrive in the next one, just use your ingenuity.

  25.   Nasher_87 (ARG) said

    Very good and we all fell; D
    How naive we are HAHAHAHA

  26.   Mario Alberto Hedz Hedz said

    They are super good all sun shit the one from win2-7

  27.   Neo said

    I very much agree with you, I don't know how he could win if he is imitating win ... if it is supposed to be a contest for better linux desktops

  28.   Revo said

    I don't understand why they don't READ!

    "However, after a long time, I was finally able to choose what for me are the 10 best desks"

    Those that FOR ME… .. PERSONAL opinion, if you like it well but also

    PS: I didn't stay either and I'm not whining….

  29.   Saul Uribe said

    I don't know if they got the name wrong or the image wrong, but my desktop image for position 6 is not correct. My image is attached, greetings

  30.   Carlos Francisco Zepeda Salaza said

    biennn inspire me to continue discovering

  31.   Let's use Linux said

    Well said Revo, finally someone who understands.
    Also, guys, let's be honest. What seems barbaric to me may seem like great shit to you. And vice versa. What seems great to you may seem like crap to me.
    On the other hand, I try to take into account other things, not just subjectivity:

    1) that there is the greatest variety of environments, distros, etc. make it possible
    2) I take into account the votes of other users on social networks
    3) those that describe their configurations in detail go up a lot in my ranking (unfortunately this time there were very few who did it even though it was explicitly requested).

    You do what you can people. Do not complain ... they will stay.
    Hug! Paul.

  32.   Let's use Linux said

    I think it is a big mistake to think like this.
    Disguising Linux as Windows is VERY valid. Do not forget that it can be a very useful way to attract people who are not very fond of computers.
    Hug! Paul.

  33.   Let's use Linux said

    Congratulations!

  34.   yes said

    Every month I upload a screenshot, it gains more than 20 likes and even then you don't consider it, 0 criteria, especially when choosing the one that imitated windows 7

    If you are interested in the links of icons, wallpaper, themes or conky, you can look for it in G +, since I published it there.

    Well I do not agree. As I said in another comment, it seems very valid to disguise Linux as Windows. First of all because maybe you or I don't like it so much, but many people may like the "look" that Windows has just as others may like the "look" of MacOS. Also, it can be a nifty way to bring Windows users to Linux, especially those who don't know much about computing.
    Cheers! Paul.

    is there a simple tutorial or manual on "conky" out there on arch?

  40.   Paqco Suarex said

    Hello, what is the font? Regards.

  41.   Let's use Linux said

    There was an error on 6 (as can be seen from another user's comment). It was alredy corrected.
