Hiya! I'm basically a computer nerd who's also interested in any art or craft project, so long as it's fun. My current fave materials are tube and pot watercolors, acrylics, and puffy paint for painting, sidewalk chalk, soft pastels, oil pastels, crayons, colored pencils, graphite, ink pens, and charcoal for drawing, clay and maché for sculpture, and as for craft materials, I don't really have a preference as long as I can have fun with it. :lol:

As for my fave creativity software, it's GIMP and MyPaint. Fave media player is VLC, and I prefer Asunder for CD ripping, Morituri if I want accurate rips, and Sound Converter for ripping audio from YouTube vids. My fave operating system right now is Arch Linux for being cutting-edge and rolling-release, but Fedora's also cool as far as cutting-edge distros go while Debian Stable and CentOS are pretty sweet rock-solid LTS distros. ArchBSD meanwhile is a pretty good idea as well, bringing the Arch philosophy and userland to FreeBSD. My fave DM/DE combo is LXDM + MATE or Xfce using Compton with Unredirect Fullscreen Rendering enabled as the compositor for both MATE and Xfce.

Fave web browser and e-Mail client is Firefox and Thunderbird, while my fave chat clients are Pidgin for IRC and Facebook, and Skype. Fave voice chat client is Teamspeak.

And now here are the stamps.

uhm, why do you keep uploading desktop screenshots?

Wouldn't call that art unless you've been toying with conky or drew your own background or something, or even better, wrote your own WM/DE. Just saying :meow:
