I code on a laptop running Ubuntu, soon switching to a Arch/Crunchbang dual boot though.

Intel i7-3632QM
1.5 TB Hard Drive
AMD Radeon 7670M
25 Inch Monitor

Forgot the motherboard Tongue
I'm not even using the laptop's keyboard, though I like it alot. It's infact just closed with a bunch of wires sticking out of it..

Damn gouessej I was about to post something like what you said.

Most of the whole, "Whats your Rig" ends up about people bragging how much money they spent on a computer they will never actually use to its fullest potential.

I will join though.

I use Eclipse for java and...I really only use java. Although, been doing some C# with Unity and is java.

My Computer ain't nothing great. Just a computery computer. It does the normal computer things like sit there...processing in a deep sleep.
I also have a graphics card but he does not really come out unless I play a game.

I have two keyboards and two mice, two CPUs (one in use), two GPUs, two PSUs and two monitors. Seems I have two of everything! Of course, I'm only using one of each except for my monitors.

I´m using a Macbook pro 15". I´m thinking that if it´s good enough to use as my music studio computer I could make some simple games with it too. Smiley It would be nice with a bigger monitor but other then that I´m pretty satisfied.

That desktop... it has too many shortcuts on it for me! I love mine almost spotless with a folder here or there and the trash bin! Anymore than that and I go on a cleaning spree and delete all of it!

Your desktop sounds like it has too many shortcuts for me.

I keep my desktop 100% clean from anything. It makes me look more professional. (and I like my wallpaper Smiley)

I've never seen a business machine that has no desktop icons...I really don't see how that's "more professional". It sounds like you guys just don't know how to properly utilize your desktop. It seems like a cluttered mess if you just have icons thrown around everywhere. But, if it's properly organized, than it is definitely an asset.

Here's a tip. Get Fences by stardock. Not only can it organize your icons, but, you can also double click the desktop to hide all the icons, so they only show when you need them.

1. I'm on Linux, so that won't work for me.
2. I organise my menus well, so I can find things easily anyway.
3. By doing it this way, I don't have to keep switching to my desktop to find something.

4. Business sounds a lot to me like enterprise, and we all know what that's like. -___-

Really if you have win7/8 you shouldn't have icons anymore.

For win7.

1. Press start orb.
2. click in the search programs. (by default it is selected)
3. Type the program you want.
4. Press enter.

Step 3 really only requires the first few characters so it is really very fast. Sure, you could hot key to desktop and double click to open but you cannot have every program on the computer ON the desktop. I use 30+ programs/games/apps off and on. There is no need to have desktop icons.

A think the most professional is the most efficient. (At least in the coding world) I mean, why would you not use all the features available to you?

That's why I love Windows 8. I don't actually use any Windows store apps, but I do stick all of my programs onto the start screen so all I have to do is hit the windows key and select my program. After I do it enough, I remember where all my programs are pinned so the whole process usually takes max 1 - 2 seconds. So quick and easy, and that's the only reason why I won't switch back to 7!

In my case, I do not have desktop icons because I use GNOME Shell.  In it, if I move my mouse to the top left corner of the screen or press the Windows key, it will lead to this menu (since taking that picture I have added Emacs to the menu), which has everything that I would put on my desktop.  Better yet, when I need to get to applications in the future, I do not have to minimize everything to get to them like I would have to do with them on the desktop.  I just need to move my mouse to the top left corner or press the Windows key.  Opening the menu with applications open only does this, and once I close the menu the applications return to their respective depths.  It is very convenient, much more than using the desktop.  It seems like it would, therefore, be more of an inconvenience for me to use desktop icons.

What distro is that? I know it looks like that because of GNOME, but I want to try a new distro besides Ubuntu.

Dude get rid of gnome, it's a piece of shit. It completely hogs up memory. I suggest you get something like LXDE or some other lightweight wm.

Umm... GNOME is actually decent up until the latest versions. I don't know what you're talking about, but even on my old netbook from ~2008, old GNOME ran fine.

Yeah, it does seem to use quite a bit of memory.  Nonetheless, my computer runs it flawlessly and I never have memory issues.  In a few years when software takes more to run and my laptop has more trouble running everything, I may look at a lightweight distro, but for now my computer isn't weak enough to need it.  I love how beautiful GNOME is, and my computer runs it just fine, so I'll keep using it.

Memory issues? Dude tablets now have like 2 gig of ram. They can run win 7. If you have memory issues you should really just buy more ram.

Asus N550LF Notebook:

15.6" 1080p Touchscreen (Jesus I can not express how useful this is for developing android
Intel i7 4500U
nVidia GT 745M (Been decent so far, nothing really struggling to play)
750GB 7200rpm

Oh and I duel boot Windows 8 (ripped off copy, screwed up bootloader and was not having the clowns at PC world wipe my drive) and Crunchbang.

I have been using Windows pretty much non stop for months now, just a pain to hotboot over to Windows when I want to fire up a game, I usually have EVE in the background so when I get stuck on some code I can go kill some idiots for relief.

An ok laptop, it is more than powerful enough for anything I am going to develop, it plays my games like World of Tanks, EVE Online and Torchlight II (with the missus).

I code on Xubuntu and Eclipse.
Windows 7 I run just for games.
Linux for everything else.

At work, I code on Notepad++ and Win XP Wink

From the usability / GUI side, I still like Win XP the most.
