It's that time of year again.

I am calling for image submissions for the "Most Loaded Desktop" 

Deadline:  30 June 2009

You can see previous years winners at this address.


Since it has been almost 3 years since the last competition was run this 
time round we should be able to officially retire the current reigning 
champion from Tim Orford.

The competition is open to everyone who has the motivation to submit an 
image of their desktop running as many audio and multimedia apps as 
possible. The winner is selected by page views once the shots are put 
live to the competiton page so the sooner you submit the more chance is 
that you clicks will add up to the highest total.

The winning receives a prominent spot on the lau guide 
http://lau.linuxaudio.org and we may even organise a real physical prize 
this time.

The rules are that there are no rules. If you can take screen shots of 
the apps that you run on your system and present the final image in a 
convincing layout then you will probably be the winner. Last rounds 
winner was Tim Orford and he stated clearly that he could not actually 
run all the apps he displayed at the same time. Still all the opengl eye 
candy looked great and that's what people wanted to see.

There must be a couple of people who could get a 16 or even 32 screen 
shot compiled now that several of us have quad core/8GB machines to work 
with. I have 8 screens running on my dual core/4GB rig at the moment but 
can I can get 16 screens filled with apps if I try?
