I love this wallpaper, but I'm also posting this to show the new Ubuntu 12.04 GUI. It looks a lot like 11.10, but has a different feel to it when you use it.

Alas, my old-ass monitor can't handle any resolutions higher than 1280x1024.



I don't like a lot of clutter on my desktop.

Van Gogh's view when he painted Starry Night, by Alex Ruiz (in reality the view was from his sanitarium window at night and then painted by memory during the day).

I know the Volt hasn't lived up to the hype, but what could. I love the car and its a step to where we want to go.
