    Default Software / what's your GUI like?

    I grew up using windows xp and such, and eventually found Mac and have been using them ever since. But When playing around on bootcamp I have had Win7 for a couple years and always liked to keep it clean looking like, sorry to say but, OSX does so well. I used I think Rocketdock at one point but it was crappy.

    So, with my new set up being such a baby of mine, I will want to keep it hella-clean. Also, I am getting windows 8, which as tech-savvy as I can be, I have been SO lost with when using others Win8 machines.

    So what's your desktop like? A folder for games? All your icons on the left like everyone's default? What about the Nvidia software that comes with the cards like the 780 I am getting?

    Maybe if enough RAM calls for it, you have some software showing you your fan and gpu info on the desktop? I know you are all anal about your cleanliness!!

    Just looking for the best looking, sharp looking, way to keep my Win8 gaming rig fresh.

    screenshots are VERY welcome!

    I'm not on my desktop so I might upload a screenshot later. I prefer Linux > Windows so I pretty much use bbLean with some tiling capabilities provided by AHK. Everything is usually monocolored with small font. I usually have an irc client and vim open at all times.

    If I'm on Linux, I use i3 as my WM. vim, irssi, and an headless VM is usually open at all time.
