openSUSE Blog Linux Wallpapers

Linux wallpapers can totally change how your machine feels. I saw this one and thought it was rather well-done. Greets and congrats to the person who did it. If you know who did this, tell them thanks for me.

If you’d like to see more really nice Linux Wallpapers, take a look at my Wallpaper gallery. I honestly don’t know who makes such great artwork, I just know that I never could. The best thing I can do for these excellent artists is to promote their great wallpapers. Throw an eyeball at the gallery and see what you think.

Linux/Unix Wallpaper of the Week

by @ 1:56 am. Filed under wallpapers

We Linux users are quite the easy-going laid-back bunch. We rarely get religious about our operating systems, and in no way wear them as a part of our very identity. We love everything, and get along with everyone. We are a peaceful bunch. I think this is beautifully articulated in the wallpaper of the week:

Unix People are Happy

Throw a quick eyeball at the SuSEBlog Linux Wallpaper gallery.

Should you have a favorite Linux wallpaper that is not featured in the gallery, please shoot me a link to it. I am happy to include wallpapers from all distributions. Heck, I even wore a Fedora 11 T-Shirt to work the other day because the guys at the 2009 UTOS booth were so cool and gave me one. Besides that, Clint Savage (more info, more info, more info, more info, more info, more info) is one totally hardcore Fedora ambassador, and he’s really cool. Wearing the Fedora shirt with pride was my props to him and the Fedora representation at UTOS.

I would have worn an OpenSUSE T-Shirt, but I was unable to acquire said shirt from my brethren at the OpenSUSE booth. Decriptor, bro… what do you say about hookin’ a brother up?

De todos modos…

Have a fabulous weekend, and remember, chill out and take ‘er easy. Like the wallpaper says.

Happy Halloween and all that. Go scare the living daylights out of someone and come back and tell me your story.

Linux is a threat – M$

by @ 3:37 am. Filed under General Linux, Linux News, M$ Exposed, wallpapers, War


You know Microsoft would only say something like this if there was absolutely no other alternative. They are marketing experts, not software experts. And apparently, the software experts that contribute to Linux have created an OS superior enough that, with little to no marketing/advertising, it enjoys a quickly-expanding install base.


“While Linux on servers is a well-established market among business customers, Linux as a viable alternative to Windows on PCs has never taken off. However, the emergence of the netbook as a low-cost, smaller form factor to the traditional notebook PC has certainly changed that, so much so that Microsoft lately has been pushing a lightweight notebook as an alternative to netbooks, Helm said.”

This is the perfect desktop wallpaper for hardcore users of either Linux or Windows. Linux guys can use it to openly declare the truth. Display it on your desktop, or put it on the department hard-core M$ fan’s desktop. Either way, it’s the perfect conversation piece. Click for the 1600×1200 version. Resize to fit as necessary. Go Linux.

Windows Sucks

As this is for XP, stay tuned for the ‘Vista’ edition.
