I'm running Ubuntu Feisty Fawn herd 4. I haven't used a Linux distribution in a long time, but now that I have Beryl running (along with pretty much everything else), I don't think any other operating system holds a candle to its looks.


You haven't tried SabayonLinux yet ;-) Wait until the end of the month though.. they should be releasing 3.3 then.

Something must've happened when they were uploaded. :confused: They should be the same size.

The forum has it's own uploading system that has a lower threshold than imageshack... and no ads/resizing. You may wish to give it a try sometime ;-)

I will keep this thread alive if it's the last thing I do!

And to think their new album is finally almost out. It was last January when they first announced it... so it's really about time.

My Humble Tiger Desktop

Most times I love to deck out my desktop with cool OSX Tiger themes, but for some reason lately I simply prefer the simplicity of the simple desktop. Main desktop is Tiger 4.9 and just loving it.

I used to love using Window Blinds on XP, but sadly, I was too cheap to pay for the shareware version. Hmmmmm.... could I be an open source guy?

I hear you. I refuse to buy WindowsBlinds. Call me cheap. It's a great program, but I don't need Windows-themes that badly.

+1 for you for the Nikon icons.

Ahhh, the simple desktop...

Ahhh, the simple desktop... how I love thee. Hopefully, Rob, you can see those beautiful Niko icons (oh, what a beautiful camera :) ) better here, they are in 16 million byt color and look just like the real thing. I get a lot of icons from interfacelift. They originally offered Mac icons only, but now have Window icons for Vista and XP. I use the old address: www.xicons.com Check em out!.

Thanks, will do.

Psst.... Check out the Uxtheme Multi-patcher. Then find and apply .msstyle files manually. Free, looks great, and is much faster than WindowBlinds and/or other third-party items chewing on one's RAM.

Thanks BlindMonk, will try later. I love about a million of the Window Blind themes, so being able to apply themes Free would be fantastic. Wish it also worked on Windows Professional 2000 too. I have that also and I really find it fast and stable. :)

Thanks BlindMonk, I'm curious enough to try that out later.

Hah, I will check it out. You need to upgrade those icons though, each one of those cameras have had upgrades (F6/D2Xs/D200) ;)

I am so frickin' boring with my desktop. In both XP and Vista, I simply set my background to black. I place most of my icons in my quick launch bar so there are very few icons on my desktop. I like it clean like that.

Or maybe that quote by Nietzsche or somesuch; something like, "When you look into the abyss, the abyss looks into you."
