The Island Paradise Desktop

Today's featured desktop combines the pleasures of a desktop vacation with the functionality of having oft-used folders, controls and information right on the desktop. Flickr user ashleyann56 built this desktop for a tropical, watery theme that that can take you away from the work you're doing without taking you away from the information you need.

    i tried, but could not get it to look that nice

    I had to double take on that picture and indeed I do have it amongst the 100 or so nature/outdoor themed pictures that currently swap and change on my work computer. Now if I could only convince them to change to win7 from xp so i didn't have to have a separate program running for slideshow wallpaper I would be a happy man.

    I wish I could make my desktop look like that! Is there a step by step guide anywhere that anyone knows of?

      Never mind - I've almost done it myself.

    Just FYI the said start button changer is old and will not use .PNG files as this is what the aperture icons are..
