Desktop background and theme
« on: July 13, 2007, 03:35:26 PM »
I thought we could share our desktop backgrounds and theme if you use another one than the default.

Myself, I use the Windows XP PRO background, and the VTP, Vista Transformation Pack 6.0. I hate Vista, love XP PRO, but also like the look of the Vista taskbar, so what else could I do?  ;)

Post your own desktop backgrounds.

You have lots of desktop icons.  Isn't it true that if you store files on the desktop, especially big ones, that it slows down boot time?

PS: I notice you're an anime fan, too (for shounen ones) :)

It should slow it down a bit, as the icons would have to be read from the files on the desktop (or from prefetch), but I don't know that it would slow it down that much.

Looks like most are running Vista or have a liking to it with Vista-themes on their XP pc's :)

Yep, my icons are from Vista. WindowBlinds provides some of the Vista-like functionality I guess & I've used LClock for a long time.. I'm old & my eyes are dim.. I needed a bigger clock. ;D

All I did was use a picture of my kids as my background. Plus I have all their photos as a screensaver slide show.
