The Very Yosemite Desktop

The Very Yosemite Desktop

Reader joshnroy just upgraded to Yosemite, did just a little tweaking, and submitted this serene desktop of Yosemite National Park running on OS X Yosemite. Here’s what he used to set it up.

Joshnroy’s desktop is fairly simple to configure, actually — it doesn’t use a lot of tools, and most of it is available within Yosemite. Here’s what you’ll need if you want to make your newly upgrade Yosemite Mac look like this:

That’s it! The nice thing about Übersicht is that there are tons more widgets and scripts available to customise your desktop if you want them, so this is really just the beginning. In our tests, Übersicht was pretty light on system resources too — especially compared to GeekTool — so you can customise to your heart’s content. If you have questions about this desktop or how joshnroy made it, head over to his Flickr page, linked below, to ask away!
