the thing about a desktop is it should be pleasing on the eyes.. none of these flashy colours like I see on some of them. That's why I like mine: its completely a dark colour, and at the same time, it looks cool Smile

hey jonos ur a lamer.

it seems sumone voted 3 times for dafoz, but i sense foul play. hmm.

its a conspiracy, and im proud to be a lamer as it was self-inflicted and a request

Jonos got a lamer rank... i wonder how....

srry jonos.. but its a bit funny...

also.... i agree... and dark not flashy one works good...

mind you... i like the color blue.... and... so hence i like mine... other then that.... i had a dragon on my desktop, and i had the jungle theme for win 98 (cuz it was dark colors, maroon, browns..)

Author:  Cervantes [ Mon Mar 08, 2004 9:07 pm ]
Post subject: 

I didn't like the jungle theme that much.. The background was okay, but the sounds were just annoying! Guess you just had to not activate the sounds.

Anyways, how did dafoz get so many votes so fast?! Thinking

Its simple but has meaning. I love dragons and hate bright and busy desktops. This one just fit all the requirments perfectly.

Post subject: 

I don't know about 'meaning' but I agree with everything else d_foz said. Desktops shouldn't have alot of contrast in them. Smooth blends through a small range of colours with maybe a little sharpness for focus work best in my opinion. And yes, dragons are great. Wink
