By the way... I am using Windows XP, not vista as the toolbar may lead you to believe. It's the Vista Aero visual theme from the vista transformation pack.

Mate, a blind man can see that, that is XP and not vista.

The windows flag was actually a screenshot of the 3D windows XP screensaver that microsoft made. Then I added the text in the upper left, gave it a dark blue background and voila! Plain, simple, but visually pleasing. Note the lack of icons on my desktop - I try to keep my desktop clean.

Looks Good...... :)

Don't worry about the Vista issue....I've got 4 PC's here all within a year old....All come with Vista and only one is running Vista... LOL!!

The best thing about the Vista OS is the wall papers.... As far as the per pixel toys and other lil perks. I've been doing them and much more with Object Dekstop for years..

From what I hear though. Vista is about to become the ultimate operating (DEEP BREATH) system with the SP1....(Ahem)... LOL!! I guess when that happens, I'll put the machines back to their OEM packs..Until then, XP is on them all.. ;) Although I am hoping for an XP comparible system in Vista, at the least.

Cheers :)

Very nice Tux. The overall black theme and color is really effective, especially with images laid on top. It makes them really stand out. Makes you want to click on them to get a better view. The wallpaper is pretty cool also. Gloomy but a lot of character. Again, very nice.

Thanks.

The wallpaper is indeed gloomy , by design. I needed a wallpaper that fitted that black theme and the best idea I had was one from Nine Inch Nails. However I did not have the one I especially thought about so I had to find another one on the internet. This one is for NIN's latest album. If you don't know NIN, read this wikipedia article and you'll understand why you found the wallpaper gloomy. ;)

Hello Island Dog... nice desktop.

The first is my main monitor with Adamant WB for Vista.With Astra Trillian for MSN and IRC Stardock.

Cursor is SDdesktop

The next is my secondary monitor with Aqualix Vista Icons, desktop system weather, calendar and clock widgets by Richard Mohler.

IRC Stardock is Astra Trillian. Portable Applications is used here and at work to remote manage my systems completely. [start menu design is my own to match my system]...

@Shelby_GT - very nice setup! I might have to give Trillian another whirl just by the looks of your theme!

When it's ready. :P

More seriously, we have to wait for the end of the month. And... both my laptop and desktop died.

OK, not completely but my laptop has a fried graphic card (I can use it as long as I don't use the nvidia drivers but only the vesa/vga ones ; linux power ;p ) and the other one had a bad cpu which damaged the motherboard and I don't intend to have any business sell me defective cpus just like that. So it is not very practical. Anyway, I'll manage to do it for next week-end. ;)

Well, staying on topic with Mustangs and wallpapers. Here is a link to the new 2008 Ford Mustang Bullit (flash page with wallpapers): Website

Here it is at an autoshow: Picture

I understand that they are building 7,700 of them. No logos, no spoiler, tuned to sound like the original, Dark Highland Green and oh so sweet.

I don't think anyone submitted a Mustang wallpaper. There's a Dodge Charger on the other page... :unsure:

:blushing: You are correct. I saw the name 'Shelby_gt' and scrolled past mr.brownstones thumbnail and 'a' Mustang's image locked in my head. This brought up what I had recently seen on the 2008 Bullit.
