Stev, glad you like it, your XFCE is post 2, add some detail about your icon set used if you like.
I have a large trashcan because, I make a lot of rubbish :whistling:

Compiz Cube KDE PCLinux

Here is the Compiz cube that everybody likes to show.
This time ist with KDE4.6.5 on PClinux.

Different applications, icons, widgits can be run in a different
desktop, you can have up to 16 desktops in KDE, though
I tend to stick to two.

Here's why I've fell in love with the Xfce Desktop. this is Phinx (PCLinuxOS-Xfce) on My Desktop as opposed to the Linux Mint Debian Xfce I posted Earlier which was on my Netbook.

Distro: Phinx XFCE4
Icon Theme: Malys-Uniblack
Desktop Theme: Phinx Chalk (No Compiz Themes Needed :grin:)
Mouse Theme: Phinx's Default Wonderland Theme (Though you can't see it on the screenie)

Burg Bootloader (Ubuntu 11.10)

Sand, sea... and Emily Scott.
Shown is my custom boot loader for Burg. This is running
on Ubuntu 11.10 and Burg installed in my mbr.

Burg is an alternative to Grub2 featuring custom icons.
I cheated a little, the fancy text is actually part of
some new icons I made.
Burg for Ubuntu:

Firstly the 12.04 layout you have is pretty nice and it must be the only time i've thought the faenza icons look good somewhere. Secondly what a boot screen! Not only did i not know you multi booted linux which is something i want to learn to do next but most importantly i commend you for your choice in boot screen backgrounds! 10/10 for that :rofl:

Cheers Steve. Burg follows on from Grub2, but unfortunately, os-prober (the script used to detect and configure other linux systems) can fail at detecting systems installed using grub-legacy. I disable it and manually edit each stanza.
