The Clean, Empty Desktop

We toss around the term “minimal” a lot, mostly to describe spartan yet elegant desktops or workspaces. It’s all about removing the things you don’t need so you have plenty of room for the things you do — and to give yourself creative space. Lifehacker reader unkn0wn did just that with this clean, minimal desktop.

This desktop is great not just because it gives the user information such as system status, time/date and network health, but also because other it’s otherwise completely free of distractions. Here’s what you will need to make it yours.

That’s all you need for this one. We might add the GoogleBar skin somewhere for quick web searches, but it’s beautifully clean as it is. The taskbar here is shown, but hiding it could add to the clean look.
