    In the rarely used windows environment there is 2 , I absolute detest cluttered desktops, hell I don’t even have a background just a plain blue screen. My start menu however is organized to the hilt and looks pristine.

    In Ubuntu, where I spend the vast majority of my time there are 4 but that is only because ubuntu creates a desktop icon when it mounts a new drive and I have 4 mounted on bootup, everything else is in the taskbar for quicklaunch or better yet mapped to a shortcut key (ie: ctrl+alt+c for cutehtml)

    There are 10 or so programs that get used daily and they all have shortcut keys, the rest are tucked away nice and neatly in organized menus. I need a spotless desktop or else I start freaking out!

    Also everything else is online and webbased. All my team communication tools are web based, project management is dotProject. So for that I use the firefox addon called ‘speed dial’ for my top 9 sites and then Netvibes to update me on the 600 or so RSS items that interest me every day(gameproducer.net being one of them of course)

    Links to planning mindmap, projects folder, inbox folder and archive folder (backups, notes, papers, college stuff…) :)

    I have 2 … the trash can and a file I am currently working on. Do I get a cookie? :)

    Here are some things I use to save a lot of time..

    - I use Launchy to quickly start programs. No icon searching anymore.

    - I seperate programs, project files and reference materials.

    - In my quick launch bar I have a link to the mind map I use to organize goals, projects and tasks. I use XMind for that which lets me link tasks/projects to their corresponding files, folders and/or web links. Saves time usually spent on searching and clicking through folders. Do it once and leverage it!

    - In my quick launch bar I also have links to the projects folder, the reference files folder and the inbox/downloads folder.
