The Desktop Desktop

The Desktop Desktop

I have a bit of a soft spot for desktops that actually look like desktops. Alec’s desktop fits the bill nicely, and actually looks like a desk surface, with items in the corners, while there’s still plenty of room to actually work, and a little customisation to make it personal.

If you want a similar look on your Mac, here are the components you’ll need:

That’s a lot of moving parts, but this is a particularly deeply customised desktop. Even so, the pieces fit together nicely, and if you didn’t know from looking at it, you wouldn’t think that so many widgets went into it. If you have questions about any of it, or want to know how Alec managed to make one widget work just so, or how that works like it does, visit his Kinja blog (linked below) to ask your questions.
