are you fussy about how your desktop looks?

because i am. just today, i admit i did not do any work as i spent the whole day customizing my desktop and everything else i could modify to suit my needs (i.e. to satisfy my fixation on the color pink). yes, shame on me. good thing i'm a freelancer, otherwise i'd have been fired from full-time work a long time ago due to huge amounts of time spent on skinning my pc.:p after hours of changing the look of everything that can be modified, i am finally satisfied. (and i still did not do any work. i went straight to myLot. shame on me twice. hee hee.) almost everything i can see is pink now (almost, because some of the icons have no pink version, hard as i search). if you hate pink (like ABHOR it) and stared at my monitor for even three seconds, you would puke on the screen for sure. of course, since i warned you already, you wouldn't dare.:p do you leave your pc as it is (the way it looks when you first bought it)? or is there anyone out there who's like me? i guess there are quite a few (understatement of the year). i mean, what are the thousand skinning sites (wincustomize, deviantart, crystalXP.net, etc.) for anyways?:D

I am not fussy. It is always clean. I always leave my desktop blank except for recycle bin. Any files I download and save are organised into cateogeries and arranged in different locations

I used to be picky about it. Now I pretty much just change the background and get rid of any shortcuts for things that I don't use.

First of all, I've only bought 2 IBM compatible computers. All the rest I have built myself. No matter whether I have built the computer, or bought it, it goes through many changes with me. I customize the desktop, and everything else I can. The I tweak it on a regular basis just to get a little bit more speed out of it. lol

yes, sometimes when don't have aything to do.. i would download wallpapers, alter the color of my windows, download some themes and visual styles... its kinda fun right? when you do stuff that you like.. yeah, i am really bothered by the way my desktop looks.. if i don't like the wallpaper then i immediately changed it.. but then, i cannot right away find a wallpaper that suits my taste so it really takes time.. i do admit that sometimes i am a perfectionist so i look at every detail an try to see if its pleasing to my senses or not.. also with themes and visual styles, it also takes time to download them and apply them one by one.. i also change my icons and fonts and i download them and put in my collection and still try them one by one.. so you see, i maybe just like you who can spent more hours just to beautify my desktop..

I like a good background picture on mine, and to keep in clean. Don't like a lot icons on my desktop. Besides that I'm not really that picky. The way I look at the only time I see my desktop is when I log on or log off.

My current desktop - How my desktop looks today.
I like a fairly simple desktop with not too many icons on it. The is how it looks right now. It has the blueglass theme. Notice the bar at the bottom with all the icons and the temperature (it's actually a full weather report) thingy on it. That's a drawer that I can have pull back in so I don't have to look at that stuff when I don't need it.

well we have more or less the same taste in style (only i have color pink everywhere. hee hee). i don't like icons on my desktop either so i choose to delete all of them (save for the recycle bin as it cannot be deleted so i just hide it) and replace them with objectdock plus. its visually stimulating, makes me more up for work :)

i can't help but to change my computer's looks. Since i prefer Linux over Windows, all of my Windows machines have been modified to look and sometimes act like Linux. My newest project is Rezurektion. i took an old Dell Latitude CPi (366Mhz, 128Mb ram) and put Windows 2000 Pro on it. Then installed LiteSTEP, an alternative windows shell, to change it's appearance and hopefully performance. It's done well so far. here is the link to a screenshot of it: http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b254/tekajo/rezurektion_ss.jpg The picture is only 65K so it's dialup friendly. i even have my XP system looking like MacOSX. i'd post a screenshot of it, but i'm not home at the moment.
