I am a fan of Leo Laporte's TWiT network (twit.tv), so this explains my Windows XP desktop's background

Spoiler:


And then a random search for awesome face on Google Images lead me to this background on my Windows 7 laptop

It's either geektool or rainlendar.

I decided to give rainmeter another try. Not sure if I'll keep it.

Yeh, as Zet said, it is called Geektool. It uses Python scripts and such.

Your Omnimos are misaligned :(

I always thought Omnimo was cool, but I could never get myself to use it. So I just went spelunking on customize.org to take bits and pieces that I liked off skin packs.

I decided to look into something else in my latest desktop wallpaper.

Anyone here remember the Looney Tunes cartoons? Such classics they were.

This wallpaper shows one of the biggest love affairs from the series - Pepe Le Pew & Penelope.

Spoiler:


I loved Looney Tunes cos it's funny.

Here's a nice Assassin's Creed themed desktop for you. Pre-shrunk*. I was using my old Batman theme, but I figured it was time for some variation. :D

When I was building my computer I looked at the processor and though that it might make a cool wallpaper, I was not disappointed.

I recently changed my desktop's theme and wallpaper so why not post it here?


The original artwork my signature is based on.

I have a themed dark blue GNOME desktop with Compiz... I think it looks spiffy.
(Click them for full sizes)




I also have many Virtual Machines on this thing with different desktops...
You can see them here:
Spoiler:
My Database virtual machine:


My generic Windows XP virtual machine:


My Server virtual machine:


I have others, but these are the most used ones currently. I can post the others if people want to see them though.

This ones mine! I have a second desktop courtesy of Windows XP mode thanks to to the features of the professional edition, but I use that one a little less frequent. the laptop itself is an HP G62 and though you can't see it, I do use BatteryBar for watching how much power I got left when off the plug.
