ok guys, we've had some desktop threads in the past, but i think we need to work more on one pic and do some "themes". in the pics we need:

~part of your desktop
~icons on your desktop/bar or w.e that is for macs
~firefox/mozilla (or ie, if you are teh noob)
~pbn in the window (want to see that theme, if you have a name there, if not just put kusa in the window)
~your media center... windows guys that means windows media player, mac guys that means itunes.

state what kind of theme you are going for...
list where you got stuff for people

i suggest finding some stuff.... firefox has downloadable themes under tools>themes>find more themes

i will be the sole judge, my picture will be used as an example, not as one that will be judged. if you have skins for Windows media player, i suggest using them...

themes will be judged on:
-unique look
-quality desktop pic
-clean desktop (minimal icons)
-how stuff matches
-plain uberness

my picture will be up in a second... i need to restart firefox to make my new theme work

ok, i didnt get much of the background but there isn't much to see. basically i have the following:

firefox "redshift" theme
and the alienware basic theme that is called "darkstar"

you can aquire darkstar and 3 other alienware themese here:
http://alienware.com/intro_pages/invader.aspx its at the very bottome, the program is called "alienGUIse" there will be 4 programmed themes, they are very easy to install, just click apply on the one you want.


edit: my kusa theme is "darkside", i wish they would make it liquid so it would fill the window like the liquid blue theme.
my pbnation theme was "greys" with the sidebar. i went for a dark theme with red accents because in the dark it is much easier on the eyes with my crt moniter. the icons and wmp skin were included with the theme for windows.

edit2:

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v288/claustrophobia9/Untitled-1copy-3.jpg theres my desktop, nothing facny, but i couldnt find anything red and black that looked good

well your theme isn't really that unique unless you did it yourself and you're the only one that has it.

its a combonation of themes. i may not be the only one with darkstar alien guise, or the only one with firefox redshift theme, etc... but i put them all on at one time, and made the my theme for my computer. it may not be completely unique, im sure there is still the possibility of others doing the same, but its more unique than just "Vista". although neither entirely unique, and both are different from the norm i suppose what i meant was mine was closer to being unique than the few possibilites durrel has in vista (since its only the prototype and it hasnt been out long, not much has been made for it)

go ahead post away, id like to see less bickering (although i enjoy contributing) and more pics.

and no... i didnt notice it was a PC, why do you hide it man... im a startbar for life (until i get rid of this computer :rolleyes: which could be life, considering the way my dad is...)

id give hossy abotu a 7.5/10, phil an 8, and uk a 9.

points off for all of you because:
-1 the white hurts my eyes, and is a little more boring than black imo, (thats (-.5 for each item)

phil and hossy:
-1 desktop programs some of the icons i change outside of a theme, using reshacker.exe, i dont know if it will work for macs or w/e but you should try, i dunno, it seems like alot of clutter on that bar at the bottom, it bothers me... hossy has some img clutter going on the desktop. not entirely neat on hossys part and slap on the hand for phil stealing music... dont think i didnt see it...

hossy:
-.5 for the low res backround

mah theme, i would use blueshift or blackjapan, but i cant find anywhere to get a black startbar, and silver and blue looks wrong with it, and i hate the green

so...if anyone knows where to get something to change the XP startbar to black, id love it, kthnx

i gave you a link in my pic post. they have a few that change the color, the black bar is darkstar, and its a red/black theme, thats what im using... for a blue black id reccomend invader... plus the buttons in the top left of every window are cool, windows media player, another type of minimize button, and alienware link.

i like the backround

http://image.alienware.com/Images/product_detail_page_images/aw_desktop_theme/invader_big.jpg
thats "invader" it goes well with blue shift, i used it for awhile and got bored so i switched to darkstar for a little.

yea, you have to scroll all the way down to download the actual program called alienguise... they have a few more themes besides the 4 preprogrammed alienware ones, but they cost teh moneez

btw i suggest atleast downloading the invader skin for windows media player to everyone, the thing is crazy cool, and impresses the ladies... :rolleyes:

lol you mean the only media player that STFU's. all of them are annoying. itunes does nothing but post messages about the new one that i should download today, realplayer wants me to register or something i dont know, nero automatically sets every file on your computer to its default.... seriously, u know how long it took before i could open a word document? etc, etc. WMP ftw.

Some people like the way OS X works and is setup more?
What is your obsession for caring?

What is the obsession with trying to make Windows XP look like OS X?i prefer it the way it is. i keep firefox and alien guise on a flash drive for when i go to school... needless to say, they frown upon that...

BlueShift is my FF Theme.
It also has the Joga Bonito sidebar, and Portugal is the Theme.

Alien is my SOC theme.

PbNation theme is regular, cuz I'm never on it.

i would have said something about the green startbar but it tends to match the mozilla theme. your theme would have a fairly girly feel if you didn't add the car background which i like (ecept the massive topshift thing, words are fine its just not the best placement on their part imo)
the wmp skin is a stock but it flows well. no pbn? ok.. thats fine. id give it an 8.5 cuz you didnt really look for a ton of stuff, but it does look good. very smooth etc. the red i have is scaring me, im gonna do another very soon
