The Long Arm Of The Galaxy Desktop

The Long Arm Of The Galaxy Desktop

Like we’ve said before, sometimes less customisation is more, and this beautiful desktop from reader Mackenzie is another great example of how just a couple of skins — not too many — make all the difference. Here’s how she set it up.

This is a Windows system, and Mackenzie notes that it’s really just one Rainmeter skin — and even that skin had some elements removed instead of added. Here’s what you’ll need if you want a similar look:

  • The wallpaper
  • The Rainmeter system tweaking and monitoring tool for Windows
  • The Simply Nova theme for Rainmeter for time/date display, weather, and system monitors

That’s it. No lengthy list of widgets, or tons of scripts to customise — and the result looks pretty awesome. If you like what you see, head over to Mackenzie’s flickr page (linked below) to let them know you like how the finished product looks, or to ask your questions about how it was all set up.
