Christopher Yarrow has a desktop that reminds us of Windows Phone 7 and long nights at the blackjack tables in Vegas. With RSS on the desktop and widgets for Gmail, the weather, networking and power, he’ll always know where he stands when the chips are down.
We’ve seen a lot of Metro UI and Live Tile-inspired desktops, but this one combined a few tiles with the text of Metro UI and still manages to keep a little personalised elegance about it. In other words, it doesn’t turn into a tile-laden mess. If you want the same look for your Windows desktop, here’s what you’ll need:
- The wallpaper from High Definition Wallpapers
- Rainmeter 2.1 beta to embed the date and feeds on the desktop
- The Omnimo UI for the widgets and Windows Phone 7-inspired style
- The Windows 7 Start Button Changer and the Metro White Start Orb
- The Eclipse 2 Icon Pack to replace the standard taskbar icons
