Each member can post one desktop in this thread each month.
The desktop cannot be larger than 800x600.
Not only will posting inappropriate desktop pictures get them deleted, it will also get you banned. This includes anything semi-lewd. This is a family forum if it's not PG then don't post it.
Feel free to post the source from which you got your wallpapers, themes, icons, UI modifier apps, etc.

Gazzanova, can you post what you did to get your "theme" like you did? For example, the black background in the System Preferences window.

the theme is crystal clear interface 1.9.1, you have to tweak the colours to get that black theme

Gazzanova, where do you get all of your awesome backgrounds from? Every time I look at this thread, I end up stealing yours. :)

Also, for the interface, do you have to tweak the colours in terminal?

i usually just google "space wallpapers"

there is a gui for tweaking the colours so you don't have to use the terminal

gazzanova, buy a real mac! Seriously though, you might want to be careful, you're not supposed to discuss running OS X on non-apple hardware here. I would assume posting screenshots and putting it in your profile would be the same thing.

You should think about getting that boxed set with iLife and iWork. Even if you don't want those sets, I'm sure you wouldn't have trouble selling them and getting Leopard for next to nothing overall.

Is that safe to use on regular Macs? It says it's for people running OSX on PCs, which is against EULA of course.

It ran fine on my mac, but I only used it to change the about this mac icon nothing else.

cheers! i cant claim to be original, i stole the whole idea from another desktop i saw elsewhere :p

The clock and date etc is done using Geektool (http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/17621), if you want any help with it just ask.. its really weird, its a preference pane and is done with strange code (that i found on the internet).

The grey bar is also using geektool. I made the dock invisible so it just shows the bar.

Used Candybar to change the application icons to the Kobhens icon set (and made some of my own to replace the ones that arent in the set).
