my Java Desktop : Smashingly Impressive !

[My Java Desktop]

Here's a Screenshot of My Java Desktop. It's so neat and spiffy that I am extremely happy that I have it running on my laptop. When I first installed the Java Desktop on my laptop. everybody around me told me that I was making a brave move. "Think about the graphic applications that you use rohan, how could you generate graphics using JDS, whats gonna happen to Adobe Photoshop? what about dual boot system with Windows XP also running on it, so you are not rendered laptop-less"; well; i tell you, warnings flew left right and center. I didnt hesitate a bit before installing JDS on "my" laptop. & hey !! no dual-boot. I went all the way. Kind of like what my swimming instructor did to me when I was little : he told me to go all the way, just like what my "then" fiance (now 'wife") told me when we spoke about going steady: she said "go all the way rohan, I promise you that you will not regret it". I have never gotten to regret anything so far... so I took the plunge. Java Desktop. All the way. And hey !! I use GIMP for graphics, it's way cool, easy and though I would not say that it outbeats Adobe Photoshop, it's good enough., I use Evolution for my corporate email, thunderbird for persomal email, firefox for my internet browser, mozilla for intranet, and Staroffice. Who says that one would have issues with word documents, I can not only read word documents in StarOffice, I can also create them !!, not to forget presentation, spreadsheets, drawings, charts, workflow, diagrams the works !!. am i so happy I took the plunge ! you bet I am. So IF you are thinking about using it, I say GO FOR IT : ALL THE WAY; and in case you need help as you go along there's always jdshelp, and the community Here is another screenshot:

BTW : The images here are all made with GIMP. And speaking about my "then" fiance, now "wife", asking me to go all the way, look what I'm got now, "roti:kapda:makaan". (for the non desi's it meant food:clothing:home) Aint that the bare necessities ?.
