This month in Linux Voice.

Those of us who remember the old days sometimes long for that bygone era when "desktop" meant the real top of a desk and not an electronic picture on a computer screen that vaguely resembles the top of a desk. But memories can be deceiving. Those old-time desktops used to pile up with clutter, which some of us were much better at organizing than others.

Come to think of it, our new virtual desktops can also get cluttered, and not just with application icons. The system of files and directories at the heart of the "desktop metaphor" can easily get stuffed with lots of eye candy you'll never use – because you'll never slow down long enough to make changes.

But Linux has oh so many tools for everything: this month we feature a utility that rotates wallpaper and background images – so you can benefit from the diverse designs stored on your system without having to sort through it and switch the pictures manually. And speaking of organizers, check out this month's tutorial on Ventoy, a cool tool that lets you boot multiple ISO system images from a single USB stick.
