Default Show off your desktop!

Seeing that the forum is slow lately, I figure we need more interactivity here. To start things off... why not show off your desktop?

Nudity is not permitted

You can use the attachment feature to upload, instead of using some website if you like.

Hot time!

I usually mix it up every month or so with some new abstract art from DevArt. I'm looking at maybe getting StylesXP. There are some awesome transitions you can make with it. ON WITH THE TOPIC!

Yeah I was in the process of changing the pic to a PNG format instead as a JPG looked grainy.

The wallpaper color kinda fits the visual theme so I just stuck with it. There are alot of wallpapers that have the "Vista" label on them. There are even visual themes to make XP look like vista.

I prefer to have the desktop with as little icons as possible. What you see in the post is what it is with very little icons to cluttered things.

I meant the fact of even remotely considering clicking on that dreaded icon!! Unless it's 7.0... then it's a tad better.

I keep IE around for pages that just absolutely refuse to work with Firefox and I need to access them. Since I removed all other access to IE I had to put an icon on the desktop.
