Nice desktops guys! Here's my December desktop. This is the first background pic I made so any comments on it would be great.

Edit: The picture turns up slightly blurry because it's in jpg format.

Oh, wow that looks cool- is that YzDock or something?

It's a system dock, it comes with Alienware's new Xenomorphâ„¢ windows theme. If you like it you can download it here:

I liked the background better before I scrolled to the bottom-right corner and saw the anime girl there. Razz
Really, it looked pretty nice!

Well I just added that in to fill up that corner because it seems bare there when all my icons are on the left side. What could I put in it's place?

Yeah but I'm not a simple kind of person.

It's not as cold as it should be outside, so voila: winter

Surprisingly decent! But Cervantes, why are you always posting Windows screenshots?

Author:  Cervantes [ Fri Dec 15, 2006 10:01 pm ]
Post subject: 

Because I'm using windows all the time now. I'm sorry guys, I've let you down.

I might try setting up linux during the break. I don't really have any need for windows. It's just more convenient at the moment.

Noobie Question: What is the open window most of you guys have on your desktop? they all look similar so i was wondering Smile

md had x-chat (irc client) and Gaim (multi protocol IM client) open, Mazer had a terminal open, and I had foobar (media player) open. None were the same.

I also had gkrellm2 running Wink

The dark was too much for me though, Brighter, and with beryl because new nvidia drivers don't suck nearly as much.

Your new theme md is (I think) a little too bright.

It's a perfect ranking! Me (top), People I talk to almost all the time, people I talk to most days, people I talk to infrequently, then there is one for family and people.

I do't see that it's too bright however... bright is good! Reminds me of the fact that soon winter will be over and I'll have heat again.

heres my lame background

Author:  Silent Avenger [ Sun Dec 17, 2006 9:03 pm ]
Post subject: 

It's not that lame but I think I know what's wrong with it. There's too much sky and not enough ground so there isn't a good balance. Do you by any chance have photoshop, gimp or fireworks? If you did you could make yourself a pretty nice background.

No you don't need to cut half the top just recreate the bottom.

I know mine is hardcore messy, but its productive to what I need it for.

Yeah, it's still December.

I'm running Xgl/Beryl, but a screenshot can't really show many of the effects. I suppose I could have shown off opacity/brightness/saturation of windows, and reflections for windows, but that's about it.

Got a new 20" widescreen LCD monitor, so that explains the resolution. Very Happy
