This shows how the 2014 “Miguel” design looks on a small-screen mobile
Here is an archive of what my desktop running Linux has looked like
since 1995. There is about one screenshot a year. I
blogged about this collection a while ago.
- January 22, 2011. In this screenshot,
taken on the netbook I use as a wifi router, Ubuntu 10.04 is running
in 64-bit mode. The theme is a high-contrast theme included with
Ubuntu; I am running Deadwood
in gdb to see if I can reproduce a crash that happened in Windows 7
approximately three months before.
- April 30, 2010. As blogged about here
I am seeing if I can be productive in an environment more recent than FVWM1.
I'm giving XFCE 4.4 a try here; I previously used XFCE in 2001 and it looks
a lot better than what was around back then.
- February 24, 2010 Here, I compare how my
webpage looks in Opera 9 and Dillo 2.2, which is starting to support
CSS. The toolbar at the top is created by VMware; since my hardware is
not supported in CentOS 5, I am using CentOS 5.4 inside a virtual machine
running on Windows XP Home Edition.
- February 6, 2009 In this screenshot, I am
running three 32-bit virutal machines in 64-bit Ubuntu 8.10 using VMware player
2.5. Two of the virtual machines are running Windows XP; I use one for
personal use, such as talking to my girlfriend on Skype or for playing
games (as can be seen here). The other XP virtual machine is used for
work; here I'm translating a document from English to Spanish, using
Wordreference.com to look up a financial term. I also have a virtual machine
running CentOS 5.2 with the old-school FVWM window manager that, while not
as attractive as Gnome, is more suitable for my style of software development.

FVWM 1, Feburary 1998. Designed to
minimize eyestrain on DTSN laptop display.
Caldera network desktop, June 28, 1996. This
shows Word Perfect 6, the first commercial-grade word processor that was
available for Linux. This also shows a proprietary desktop environment
from a company that later went out of business.
FVWM95, May 7 1996. This was the first
desktop environment which emulated the look of Windows 95; it did not
have Windows 95's user-friendliness.
FVWM1, August 2, 1995. This is the very first
screenshot I took of me using Linux.
