Perfection is admirable but it takes a lot of time. I try to follow another saying:

Fools won't notice and wise won't tell.

But I must agree, that often those little details you can't see at once eventually make difference between excellent and mediocre.

Actually, that's what it is. Originally, I took this photo for a WA conversation, there was a bit collegial competition going on. "Not out of hand, yet, but quite near." So, it's a shameless setup, I admit. Other photos are real and realistic, and not even the whole truth.

Laptop on the right is property of my employer (Windows 10). Now I use it mostly for Teams and other MS related stuff and recording from document camera. Desktop machine (2010, Debian 10) is what I use most for work, if MS software is not required.

On the left above power supply is my newest laptop (2011 model, Debian 10); that's what I carry around and use as smart TV, because it has HDMI. It's also useful for video editing, desktop machine tends to freeze when I'm exporting projects to videos.

Cute little thing is eeePC 901, still ticking with bunsenified 32-bit Debian. It's battery is almost dead, so it's lost most of it's usability. No use buing a new battery. Shift button also dumb, CapsLock remapped to replace it, and screen has taken some blows. Nice for occasional couch surfing, and keeps reminding me what I hate in tablets.
Whitekey Acer (2006) and HP on the floor (2008) are mostly for distro testing.

Always nice to see one of these little things still alive.
I sold my pearl-coloured acer aspire one (with 3G modem!) and felt the pangs of regret soon after!

Re: Post your actual desk(top)!

I've made a Corona desk at my parent's place since I'll be staying here for months (if I'm lucky; I'm not really in the mood to go back to commuting to work, and we're very rural here which makes it nice and quiet). I had to buy keyboard and monitor. This is my personal laptop; for remote work I just swap it with the work laptop. For which I always have to add 2 dongles because that's a Macbook.

I've had that old beaten IKEA desk in "my room" since about 1998.

Re: Post your actual desk(top)!

^ nice monitor, everything looks perfect even at an angle & with daylight.

Lots of wood (that support beam on the right edge!) there & matching tones on the wall, I like it!

They got 2x repeat business from be buying it already (2x for my primary setup, 1x here). It's 16:10 and 1920x1200 which makes it ideal for desk work. It's U2415. This time, I was kind of torn between buying the U2415 again vs buying its older but similar sibling U2412M, which is 50€ more affordable but has no HDMI (which I don't care about, I only use Display Port), a worse energy rating but a more stable bezel and better keys. I stuck to the more expensive one since I already knew what I would get...The U2415 is astoninglishy bright, almost all the time I'm running it at 10/100 brightness; at night even at 0/100. Compared to older panels it also produces next to zero heat. Without big measurements, I think its A energy rating is legit.

One drawback is that the IPS panel always has some slight bleed around the edges. You won't be getting a homogenous black out of this kind of panel except when it'S turned off. It doesn't matter for mixed-use workloads however. If you want to retouch pictures professionally, then you'll already now the better alternatives.

Lots of wood (that support beam on the right edge!) there & matching tones on the wall, I like it!

That's just a book shelf. THe house is not built as to not require any bare support beams, but the wall for example is I believe some sort of clay plaster and the floors are all untreated wood. It's all very "green".

Re: Post your actual desk(top)!

^ thanks for providing the model number.
Looked at the prices, I might try again in a year or so when they drop a little, and when my current monitor kicks the bucket. Unlikely it will do so in any sort of spectacular way, more likely it will just wear itself down to a level that I cannot accept anymore. It does get fairly hot though.

Oh. It looked so thick.
And yes, the walls. Kindof a "waldorfisch" look smile Like I said, I like it.

How do monitors wear out? What will deteriorate?

Maybe the process has been so gradual here that I haven't noticed it...

Re: Post your actual desk(top)!

^ My current monitor is a little pale around the edges; I think that's a sign of age.
Like I said, no actual reason to change, and like you said: maybe the process is so gradual that I don't notice it... until I do (some time in the future).
However, working in full daylight - with the sun illuminating the white wall behind me - is something I cannot do with this monitor, and never could.

Re: Post your actual desk(top)!

^^ I still think that my old Inspiron was the most comfortable laptop I've had - nice and rounded sides, unlike the hard spikey cases everything seems to have now, which leave sore spots on my wrists sad
