So I created this thread with the purpose of sharing desktop customization "tips and secrets" or whatever you want to call it. Rocket dock, Rain meter,Instant messaging programs, minimalistic skins, custom media players and Visual styles or shell replacements or even problems with the doing stuff like this. Lets talk about it all here! Anywho, here's my current desktop. So anyway I'm running Left mid ->Old version AIM Top left -> Rainmeter -> http://code.google.com/p/rainmeter/ and then use Deviant art/ Customize.org to find modules/skins Bottom left -> Songbird - Pure player : Birdie skin A custom vista visual style MNLSTK -> http://invaderjohn.deviantart.com/art/mnlstk-VS-94538135 Top right -> A rocket dock "mac bar" -> http://rocketdock.com/ , Customized icons and theme though, defaults kinda bulky. Xfire - Custom theme found here -> http://www.gunsammocrate.com/content.php?content.4 I also use "LogOn Studio Vista" to change my log on screen picture to something considerably nicer, which can be found here -> http://download.cnet.com/LogonStudio-Vista/3000-2072_4-10696252.html I also sometimes run LiteStep over Vista as it just seems to start up and run faster and although I actually prefer the LiteStep right click option to find stuff, this vista setup I have now looks too sweet for me to want to change it. Although you need to tread carefully when using Shell replacement programs like LiteStep,Geoshell,Avedesk( during install anyway ) 2 Day Edit * 30 views and not a single reply!
