What are you using to display that? (Samurize?) Also, kudos for awesome music :)


It's just the regular infobox from hovering over the program in my taskbar :P My Windows theme just skinned it a bit.

And kudos for kudo-ing awesome music!

it's obviously linux, and the icon theme screams ubuntu at me.

That's the Mint default icon theme.
Who are you and who am I
To say we know the reason why?
Some are born; some men die
Beneath one infinite sky.
There'll be war, there'll be peace.
But everything one day will cease.
All the iron turned to rust;
All the proud men turned to dust.

It's Linux Mint, which is based off Ubuntu, I'm fairly certain.

Damnit, ninja'd. I'm posting anyway. :P

Though it is small; it is photobucket's fault.

I have too many icons. this was after i took most of the icons off the desktop and put them in all those little folders you see.
There's a signature here..

It's just hiding.

Dude, I'm alright with people who use XP. I'm using it right now as a matter of fact. But if you're going to use it as your primary OS, for our sake, at least skin it and don't use the desktop as a dumping ground. :P

I just hates having to install other programs to skin windows for me. None of the ones i've tried have felt even remotely stable, and most do not even look particularly good.

I'd rather just stick with the windoze themes when I'm using it.

O.o Whenever I want to skin windows, I just download a premade theme, (customize.org FTW) click on it, and save it through right click>properties>themes. Is this different on Vista? Not that I would be surprised if Vista made such a thing harder for the sake of harder...

I took the opportunity to show off my various skins, as well.

For some reason XKCD hates my pictures dimensions. Probably because I have two monitors. Oh well, heres the direct link:

Edit: And before anyone asks, I'm using xp. I just like vista's start bar.

There's a DLL hack that allows you to use themes if you don't want to install a program.

It's pretty well known that LE4d's a 4channer. Sorta like how Belial's a human with a hat. Or that Saladin is mean. Or that Tankengine's fucking awesome.

I mean, I go there. But I wouldn't call myself a 4channer, because I go there once every few months or so and hang out for a week or two, then move on.


Anyway, this is what I'm currently rocking.

Same as nyeguy below, my dock is usually hidden. This screenshot includes a 2nd desktop from my virtual machine which ran my webserver until it hit 91 degrees out here. At that point my computer just wouldn't run all day in the apartment.
