Below you will find the snapshot I just took of my Linux desktop. currently I’m running Xubuntu 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex) from an 8GB USB memory stick. Xubuntu is a derivative of the most popular distro right now, Ubuntu, that uses an Xfce desktop environment, versus the standard Gnome environment of Ubuntu.

As you can see, Linux doesn’t look as scary as some may have told you, does it?
