It's been a while since we've had one of these threads, and I felt like showing off my PC turned Mac. Show off you're desktop and other Windows/Mac/Whatever customization.

Mine's on auto-randomize from a pool of photos in my resolution pulled off of the internets. If I show you now, it will only be that way for 3 minutes :)
Shhh! I'm not officially back yet.

You should have a blog on that. Just show a picture and like 1 sentence every 3 minutes.

I like how people generally don't like Macs, yet strive to make their computers look like them. :lol: ;)

Here's my desktop. XP with the Classic skin, dual 1280x1024 monitors, and lots and lots of icons. (Believe it or not, this is after a decent cleaning. I don't really use the desktop for icons; there's a shortcut to the Desktop folder in the Quick Launch area right next to the start menu, and I sort by file type or date modified. It actually works pretty well.)

I have a thing about having huge amounts of icons . It's just because all the important and regularly used things are on my desktop.

I dislike having a lot of icons on my desktop, not really any particular reason why.

I've made a Mac look-a-like and its not because I hate Macs, It's because I can't afford one at the moment! :lol:

Running xp pro, using the "uxtheme.dll" patch to use non mircosoft themes, Rocket dock with leopard skin and a leopard wallpaper.

And NO icons!

Not going to actually post a pic, it's not interesting enough.


Standard run-of-the-mill XP theme with the grey color scheme. The wall paper's currently some pic from that Gargoyles cartoon, but it changes frequently. There's maybe 5 or 6 icons, for my music and internet programs. Nothing fancy.
