We’ve seen some great desktops around records and record players, but I love this one because I have the same wallpaper. I don’t have the same widgets that Ben K has though, although I may correct that shortly. Here’s how he set everything up.
Ben’s running this on a Mac, if you can’t tell, with a good dose of Übersicht customised for the dark and light spots of the wallpaper. If you want the same look or feel, here’s what you’ll need:
- The White Vinyl wallpaper from this Reddit thread
- Übersicht, an OS X customisation suite we’ve featured before
- The Word Clock widget for the time in the center
- The Memory Bar widget and Disk Usage Bar for the system monitors in the upper right
- The Load and Load Chart widgets for CPU load in the bottom right
- The Playbox widget to show Now Playing info in the lower left corner
Quick and dirty, although you’ll need to do a little tweaking and moving the widgets around to get everything looking exactly the same. If you have questions, or just like what Ben did here, make sure to head to his Kinja blog (linked below) to let him know what you think!
