Show us Your.........Desktop!

Its been done before I know, but I am fairly confident that many of you are proud of your desktop décor and want to show off that modified desktop with the neat wallpaper or what have you.

Mine is Mac’n ; ), a large 3d wallpaper with the somewhat standard Blue Windows bar on the bottom and a play list bar on the top the later of which works in conjunction with winamp and my large music collection. Absolutely No Icon Eye sours on the desktop, all frequently used programs have key board shortcuts (ie: internet explorer is F12, and so on) Finally I would like to close by saying Windows 98 SE is infinitely better then Windows X.tra P.oop, morons make the move to the fisher price desktop bloated with Microsoft proprietary software, but thats my opinion I could be wrong.

This is a Metroid Prime wallpaper that I put together several day ago. I've got the original high-rez bitmap on my desktop, but I had to compress it into a jpg to attach it.



[edit]
Now that I look at it, the jpg version looks like shit compared to the original.

I really wish the winamp forums would allow us a maximum of 150KB or even just 125KB. Those extra 25KB makes a huge difference in these desktop shots.

here is the pic of my desktop that ended up
on my other posting and not this accedental one.


Also xp has better game support than windows 2000 and windows 98 has better game support then both. though both xp and 2000 are conciderably more stable then 98.

What would be funnier is a list of how many "Mp3 to wav?" threads there are/were. No, correction. That wouldn't be funny. That would be tedious. And saddening.

Well AJ, I live about 20 miles from civilization (if you can call it that), and I've got satellite. I love being able to download 4meg mp3s in 30 seconds, but honestly, I'd give it up just to have my AIM and mIRC back.


And thanks, SNYder. Took me a couple hours to get it the way it is, and I'm still not done with it.
