How much time to you spend looking at your desktop?

I'm curious as to why some people go to great extremes to customize their desktops? I spend very little time, if any, looking at the desktop. I usually have a number of apps open and never go to the desktop. Because I use the desktop so little, I also never use Aero Peek and don't really bother with desktop gadgets.

Do others spend a lot of time on the desktop when they use their computer?

Since I have a dual monitor setup, I like to have a picture that is nice to look at. I have a free monitor maybe 30-40% of the time.

Out of all my 6 screens I only ever see the desktop when the PC first boots before I have chance to open all my stuff.

I have 3 screens with some gadgets on the right screen.
Left screen has my downloads and I work on the middle on.

I do have custom wallpapers that I cropped to fit my resolutions,
just don't have an image of the desktop only at the moment.
