  • I don’t want to poo on the idea of a beautiful desktop such as the example above, but how are these people actually using their PCs? I see my desktop once when I unlock my PC in the morning and again when I lock/shutdown at night.

    Surely they’re not constantly minimising windows in order to access their media functions in Rainmeter?

    • A huge reason as to why I moved away from the ‘ricing’ of my desktop. Although given more monitors or more resolution to work with, it can actually work well.
