These screenshots are slightly old now, but I'm still using both backgrounds.

I recently changed some stuff, but how about 3 desktops in 1? desktopception?

because sometimes stuff just doesn't work on modern systems, even if 20 years ago this would be considered heresy in the computer world.
OS9 and dos/3.1 running the same silicon, inside 8.1, also tested inside linux.
it's not very arty but it's handy for some of my restorations when I can connect to hardware using supported stuff.

This is my new laptop's screen, with the fences closed to see the picture better. I made the background myself! :3

It's not drawn, actually. I use a program that involves 3D models and stuff. It's still a fair bit of work to get the placement just right and stuff, but it's still not drawing. ^^; I can share some of my drawings sometime though.

Still amazing, I do a lot of technical drawing that I input into blender when working with projects so I Know how much of a pain it can be to get stuff properly aligned and setup.

If anything it's more amazing because I thought it was hand drawn and was reminded of a lot of the stuff my sister likes to draw.

while digging around I actually found pictures of older versions of my linux desktop from the one I shared initially.

back in 2014 my interface looked like this.

Before that I'd been using an older version of KDE for my interface which I sort of miss because the modern ones sacrificed a lot for better performance and support.

that is a 3D spinning globe for the desktop background, fully rendered too.

these days I use my tron desktop though lol.
