Note: This post hasn't been updated in over 2 years.
This is the first of a new series of posts featuring desktops from the Envato community, starting with my 11″ MacBook Air. (Click the image above for a full-sized screenshot.) If you’d like to submit your desktop, check out the instructions at the end of the post.
My MacBook Air is my portable work machine. I do most of my work on my iMac, which might explain how tidy my desktop is—just one icon! The “Envato” folder is actually an alias to a folder in Dropbox, so the files I’m working on stay in sync on all my machines.
I only keep the apps I use regularly in the dock, and I have unusual taste in software. There is a bunch of open-source software: muCommander, some common browsers, the Gimp, LibreOffice, Komodo Edit and Eloquent. I keep all of my notes and snippets in sync using the cross-platform Evernote, and rely on Things to keep my organized (though I wish they’d finish their sync already).
I’m currently using a dark wallpaper to see if it gives me an extra hour of battery life. I also prefer the look of a 2D dock, which is a setting you can access with the Secrets System Preferences add-on.
What do you think of my desktop?
Would you like your desktop featured on Envato Notes? Upload your screenshot somewhere on the Web and let us know about it on our Write a Post page. Or upload it to Flickr and tag it with #envatonotesdesktops. Either way, add an interesting description. Each week we’ll choose and publish a new screenshot.
