Desktop, You Don't Stop

Ever wondered what your friend' or co-workers' desktops look like? Are the folders all structured and organized? Are they all over the place? Are they using the SVA logo as their background pattern? My friends David and Kirsten are starting to collect screenshots of desktops for a project called Pretty Desktops. When they obtain enough, they'll post them online to view.

Don't know how to do this? It's easy. On a Mac, use the OS X application/utility Grab to take the screenshot. Or hit Shift-Ctrl-Cmnd-4, point the crosshairs in the top left and drag to bottom right. Windows users can use the Print Screen key.

Don't edit your desktop. Don't change things around in an effort to make it look different. Do let your friends know about the project. Mmm, Pretty Desktops. I'm going to send them mine now.
