The GNOME desktop not only provides a GUI launch pad for your productivity software tools and utilities, but it also provides NLD (and you) a highly customizable user environment. Think about the kind of desktop personalization that other operating systems provide for their desktop GUIs, and you will be in the same league with GNOME.

You can control and personalize the desktop background, the items available on the menus and desktop panels, and you can control personal settings for both software and hardware items including the mouse and your printers. This chapter begins with an overview of personalizing the NLD desktop.
