How cluttered is your desktop

I have always kept my computer's desktop very clean. Which is actually a little weird cause I don't use the desktop much at all, I actually had to minimize several screens to even get a look at it. So how cluttered is your desktop? Leave a picture, I am curious what desktops look like in other operating systems and just how clean/messy they are. If you don't know how to take a screen shot of your desktop, minimize everything until you can see your desktop. On your computer is a button that says Print Screen ( it might say something else as well) hit the button, open up a paint program and paste either with right click-paste, or ctrl+v or through the file menu.

I have a weird habit of keeping the desktop clean too; i find it much easier to think and work that way. A cluttered desktop gives me cluttered thoughts.

This is my desktop.. - Not very interesting or very much stuff on it. I kind of ignore it. There are only about 2 things I actually use on it!
Hopefully I'm attaching a pic of my desktop right now... I don't generally pay very much attention to it. I've seen other people's computers though, that have literally the whole screen filled with shortcuts. I'm a pretty per-usual kind of gal, so rarely would I ever find the need to fill up the whole screen with useless shortcuts and folders. I'd rather keep things simple..Minimalism, that is!

well apparently you are better at adding the pictures than me, I thought I did but doesn't seem like it. Yours is very very ordered, no background. Like you said, minimalism. If my pic had gone through, I think mine goes beyond minimilism, maybe even utilitarian says it right lol. I just don't use the desktop.
