My setup is not quite as good as Neil's, but it's still pretty neat. I can't seem to find the newest screenshot on the internets, but I do have an older one (167 kB).

P.S. Google maps on dual screen (415 kB) is pretty awesome too.

I'd been told Cornwall was the sunniest part of England! :shock: If so, I'd hate to see what the rest looks like.

Im too lazy to take screenshots so ill just post the pictures. Im running 1680x1050, XP 2000-look and almost no icons so there's not much to see anyway.

Right now it's either the engine from the Cadillac Sixteen, Keira Knightley or Ana de la Reguera. Or something completely different. I wonder if there's some kind of plugin available that automatically changes the picture.

That's pretty much true. England doesn't really have sunny parts, just parts where it doesn't rain 24/7.

here's my current desktop:
