    'Pimping' your desktop......
    Hello everybody,

    Pretty new to all of this, having recently purchased a mac, has to be one of the best decisions I have made! Cant see myself working on anything else now. As I said though I am still very new to all of this and was hoping for some ideas to get me going.

    Have noticed a few of you have got some nice desktops and are also using some applications that look pretty cool.

    I was hoping if I listed a couple that stood out, somebody could let me know how to get hold of them!

    1. The dock at the bottom has no background to it, it is completely clear.
    2. When listening to music a pic of the albumn comes up and the title.
    3. loads of great wallpapers, how do I get them?

    That would be enough for now, if anybody here knows any other cool applications that would be good to use please let me know, it would be good to know!
