No icons win.
Edit: Nice use of Rainmeter treelet.

It's been a while since I have posted my current Desktop. I have been busy customizing mine with my own work (in between battling forum trolls, dust bunnies, teaching English and trying to fill the gaping chasm my kid calls her belly).

In use (pretty typical, only thing missing is a Gimp window but that is stashed on another desktop):


Clean (only Exaile's Desktop Cover module displayed, everything is minimized):


Applications seen in use: Firefox (minimized), Exaile (music player, minimized except for Desktop Cover plug-in), X-Chat (IRC, minimized), Thunar (File Manager), feh (Image Viewer), Sakura (xterminal emulator), Pidgin (in tray).

OS: Linux, Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx
WM: OpenBox
Panel: Tint2
Themes: Openbox and GTK - Xizyev (custom, created by me), Tint2 config is also custom created. Icons - Meliae SVG by sora-meliae, found at deviantART.

My normal session is an Openbox session which runs lean and mean yet is very usable for my everyday needs (hacking, graphic design, watching videos, surfing the web, listening to music). Not much in the way of eye candy, no compositing to slow down my ancient machine.

Forget about dualbooting when you can just boot 2 PCs, and use a KVM. =)

Most people use Rainmeter to populate their desktop with stuff like weather forecasts, CPU meters and so on. Think of it like a "platform" that you install skins on. These skins are what add the actual elements to your desktop, kind of like the WoW addons. You can install and use a "theme", which is a collection of multiple skins usually by the same author (kinda like a WoW UI compilation) or you can download each skin separately and build your own desktop.

So yeah, in other words, exactly like the WoW UI

For stuff like taskbar modifications, start orb changes, folder appearance etc. you can download a bunch of Windows .dlls that go into your Windows\System32 folder, or you can use programs like LiteStep or TrueTransparency or some more crazy stuff to make your own look. But the quickest way to get a nice custom desktop is to go to deviantART and search for Visual Styles. These packs usually include tons of .dlls and rainmeter skins and are meant to be a full desktop replacement.

Which is what I've done (obsessively during the last week).
