My KDE desktop. The wallpaper is a poster image of Chinese actress Ziyi Zhang (who doesn't really have blue eyes) in Memoirs of a Geisha. Plasmoids on the desktop istself are Folder View, Hardware Temperature, Network Monitor and yaWP. I have two launcher icons on the Panel: one is Lancelot and the other Takeoff. I prefer Takeoff to launch my favourites, as it can be configured to have a big pane and widely-spaced icons.
