Windows 7: How much time to you spend looking at your desktop?

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.
