GiacomoLawrance's desktop is a lot of fun -- some abstract shapes, active widgets on-screen, and shortcuts and information in easy sight when they're needed. Here's how he set it up.
This desktop isn't too tough to set up, you'll just need the right components. This one's Windows, and here's what you should pick up:
- The MD Blue Marble wallpaper by Martin Doersch
- The Rainmeter system tweaking and monitoring tool for Windows
- The Radial Clock skin for Rainmeter for the clock in the upper left
- The Simple Media skin for Rainmeter for the weather in the lower left of the screen
- The VIsBubble skin for Rainmeter for the visualiser around the Earth in the centre of the screen
- The Honeycomb skin for Rainmeter for the app launcher on the right side of the screen
- The Elegance 2 skin for Rainmeter for the date in the upper right corner of the screen
That's it for this one. There are a couple of moving parts, but combined they look great and get the job done, not to mention they take advantage of a great wallpaper to add some dynamic flare to the workspace. If you have questions about how it's done, or how to make your own setup look and work like it, check out GiacomoLawrance's Flickr page -- that's where you'll want to ask your questions.
