desktop collaboration

Here's a sampling of the desktops from my laptop over the last year. I suppose some folks like to keep their desktop plain and ordinary, but I like to change my laptop every month or so... here's some of my laptop desktops and links below. When I work in the office on the Sun Ray, I keep my GNOME session plain-jane. Ever since one of my co-workers (can't link to him, as he's not caught the blog bug yet) wrote some scripts to help me get a vnc session working on the Sun Ray, I like to keep that desktop quick and clean. Anything but a plain background slows down any session I'm driving.

The vnc thing is a great collaboration tool, since we do so many virtual meetings here. One other collaboration tool that I resisted at first was IM. I kept thinking, man I already get too many interruptions when I'm working, I don't need yet another one! But, I've been converted. Quick answers to small questions are definitely easier via IM, and sometimes it just helps some of the many virtual meetings go faster... ;)
