Windows Classic them, default blue background, taskbar expanded to double regular size, quicklaunch turned on, "hide inactive icons" turned off.

Oh, old-style start menu.

Extremely NSFW warning:

Resized 1200x450 155KB
Full size 3200x1200 1.1MB

That's what you call real translucent windows, not just translucent border + title bar. :p

Litestep 0.24.7 RC3 with a custom made theme pieced together over 5+ years of constant usage and tweaking. Can't show much of the interface/functionality from just screenshots unfortunately, especially all the hotkey driven stuff.

TRANSLUCENT SO YOU CAN SEE SOME HOLES THROUGH YOUR WINDOWS , that's not the result of 5 years+ of hard modding, that's the result of staring at ANIME PUSSY for 5 years+.

Agreed :thumbsup:. To the linuxator, don't be pushy if you want people to do what you want in one of your threads. Common "Show Your Desktop" threads pop up all the time, so don't be alarmed if people post pictures of their desktop in a thread that is titled, "Post a screenshot(s) of your desktop, and show how you modded it to be."
Technically if you change anything on your desktop, it's considered "modded."
:D

"And as you'll see, I've doubled up the taskbar, added the quick launch, and proceeded to put all my game shortcuts in the upper right. I also modded the default wallpaper to a little something more.....me."

WTF I was just wondering if that was OS X or a theme for Linux or Windows, it wasn't like I was bashing him for posting his desktop screenshot...jeez.

This is a bit offtopic, but how do you get the taskbar onto the 2nd monitor? I thought I'd try dual monitors, but it only shows the wallpaper on the other monitor.

You can echieve that by extending your desktop to the other monitor, that would mean going into the display settings and choosing extend instead having both monitors as separete desktops ;)

I did check 'extend my windows desktop onto this monitor' for my second monitor. This is WinXP, btw. I googled and used multimon taskbar to get a taskbar there. However, is there an included solution? I'd prefer to avoid using another program to accomplish this.
