    Welcome back, puchu.

    My desktop is too plain (just like me) - anyway this is my office laptop and not permitted any wallpapers. At office, the company's official wallpaper and screen-saver load up.

    The wallpaper is blend of three custom wallpapers made with paint dot net.

    Some registry tweaks to hide the taskbar(2nd screen posted).

    stardock object dock- for the menu bar towards the bottom of the screen and the left menu .


    The right menu is yahoo widgets.

    Some windows themes...............

    That's all

    If you like luxurious houses, fast bikes, delicious food, elegant clothing, then why not a desktop which looks like a hi-tech spaceship control panel. If you have the resources why not use them to the fullest.

    If I give you a Lamborghini wonít you use it because itís hard to drive? You know the answer.
