United States
I'm a keyboard jockey by day serving as a Product Evangelist at Unity Technologies, on my own time I'm a tech junkie, motorcyclist, traveler and general digital media misfit. I dabble in web design, UI design, OS customization, video editing, data viz and more. I'm here on deviantART because I'm inspired by the talent to be found here and I hope to use what they share to learn, grow and develop myself. Of course I hope to share a little of my own experience on the way too, hopefully that helps someone else.

Current Residence: San Francisco, The City by the Bay
deviantWEAR sizing preference: Roomy Med. or Snug Lg.
Operating System: OS X primary (Win 7 & Ubuntu Linux secondary)
MP3 player of choice: iTunes or my Android Phone
Shell of choice: Terminal Window? :)
Wallpaper of choice: My own
Skin of choice: My own

As I posted for you elsewhere I'm well aware of GeekTool and NerdTool, having played with both heavily over the last six months or so. Good lookin' out! :)

sure thing!
nerdtool comes with a nicer gui in comparison, but geektool gets along better with some scripts. i stumbled upon it last week, but anyway its already integrated nicely. (:

unix and linux are simply awesome.
have you tried the latest ubuntu ?!

Greetings, sorry about taking a week or so to reply. :) You posted a comment in response to my Orange Love desktop [link] asking about bugs or issues with Lion and so far I've seen very few and I think that the update was well worth it! I haven't yet latched on to Launch Pad in particular, but the new multi-touch gestures are *awesome*, especially when using the wireless trackpad. Those items that have proven a bit annoying are unfortunately bugs in 3rd party software (NerdTool not working at all on Lion, and no plans to fix that so far AFAIK) or they're design changes (customizing the icons of apps bought on the App Store apparently prevents those apps from auto-updating). But I can get around the annoyances so far, I'm going to try using Drag Thing a bit more and the dock less, switch back to GeekTool, etc. So I'm digging it!

As to Ubuntu, my MacBook Pro is triple boot already, OS X, Win 7 and Ubuntu (Natty Narwhal, 11.04). But it's my first real experience with Linux in the sense of having it on my machine for "regular" use. I say "regular" as I've not used it nearly enough and am going to try and get in the habit of using Linux at least once per week (leaving Windows as an "as needed" OS).

Not a problem, those gallery icons are awesome and I've already put them to use in my gallery ([link]). Now I'm drooling over your Minimal Icons for the dock ([link])... You earned that :+fav: and you're now about to have a new follower too.
