My current desktop(s)...

So, my PC is a little more interesting than my laptop, that is why I will list it first:

(Click here for the FullHD-image)

(I'll just continue as Nemo did above)
What is visible:

Task bar
- Chrome / Firefox (preferred): web browsers. If Firefox goes crazy (not playing 1080p60 videos on YT or smth else, I switch to Chrome. Mainly using Firefox though...
- LibreOffice: open source office suite I'm using for literally everything
- Explorer: ...
- Foobar 2000: slim and awesome music player
- Thunderbird: I have several email accounts, managed in this program

- Studium Cloud: Shortcut to my MEGA folder for my study materials
- Solid Edge ST10: 3D designing program for engineering
- Keyshot 6 / ... Resources: Program to create neat pictures of objects made in Solid Edge ST10
- Blender: 3D designing program for literally everything else
- dnbfm.m3u: Streaming link for an online radio (Foobar2000)
- Need for Speed™ World: A revival of the formerly F2P game made by EA (shutdown in 2014 or smth)
- temporarity: A folder for every file that is on the lookout for some temporary shelter

In the tray, there are some programs aswell, but in short
- Steam: Games and stuff (mostly CSGO and PUBG (<- everything on very low))
- qBittorrent: Seeding and stuff
and so on.

Most programs that I use are in the start area, so clicking on the windows button will list most of the programs that I use. I prefer a clean desktop rather than a filled one. :D

My system:
- CPU: Intel i5-6400
- Motherboard: Some cheap thing
- RAM: some cheap and low-voltage 8GB
- GPU: elitegroup NVIDIA GTX 750ti
- PSU: Some cheap underpowered thing (maybe 350 Watt or smth)
- SSD: Some Samsung 128GB
- HDD: 2TB Seagate thing (1 External HDD 1TB)
- The rest is some cheap stuff, no need to mention
- Keyboard: Steelseries Apex M500
- Mouse: Steelseries Rival 300 on a LIONCAST esport one BIG Edition (fanboy and such) - might get a ZOWIE EC1-B with a mouse bungee later on, when I have the money, as the cord is rubbed of at a certain point
(both the mouse and the keyboard are configured with the Steelseries Engine, one of the icons visible in the tray)
- Headset: Sennheiser GSP 300
- Speakers: Cheap but good Logitech speakers
- Monitor: BenQ GL2450H - 1920x1080 resolution, looking for some 144Hz screen
- Gamepad: XBOX 360 controller for PC. In case I want to play some racing games (less NFS right now - EA managed to f*ck every part of it up somehow, regarding save files, controls, online mode, and major annoying bugs)

My laptop isn't worth the mention - it also has a kingfisher as its Desktop image, but a different one. The desktop icons are pretty much the same, so is the task bar and the tray, and the start menu, too. A picture is here, anyway.

I like too clean desktop, Well, try different Linux distro and finally keep one that does for you.
