    Nice desktop there Aaddron. Psu, you win the challenge of having the cleanest desktop design :D

    My desktop is littered with icons and has the default background image for the Asus Eee Netbook PC :(

    Those are cool Aaddron! So are you using Ubuntu or some sort of custom Linux? I've got a laptop that's like 4-5 years old I was thinking of putting Ubuntu on it, it's currently got XP. Any recommendations or tips, I've only used anything Linux-related like twice in my life.

    Thanks airgamer, I used to have a super-messy desktop but I like my dock better now.

    Nope.

    1. Just go to your desktop and press the Print Screen key that is on the top right-hand corner of your keyboard.
    2. Go to Paint, Irfanview, or whatever image editor you use and go to Edit>Paste (or hit Ctrl+V) to paste your desktop screenshot.
    3. Go to File>Save As and type whatever filename you want your screenshot to be (something like desktop.jpg).
    4. Go to an image hosting site like imageshack. Make sure the images/videos is clicked and then Browse for the screenshot that you saved.
    5. Once you find your screenshot file, click on Upload Now.
    Imageshack will then give you a Direct Link to the image. Post this link up on the forum.

    Ok that was 5 things but they aren't too difficult to do.

    :)

    How 'bout a Windows 7 clone? If anyone wants to know how to make it just ask and I'll shoot you a PM, took me a half hour or so. :D

    [​IMG]

    Although it has to be x10 more challenging in Ubuntu then in Vista to make an OS clone. This was just easy because they look alike. Only advantage with Ubuntu is easier customization.

    Nice, in Linux they have a couple really good ones, they even have aero snap and the new taskbar functionality down. For example:

    [​IMG]

    Sorry it's so small, also note the icons can be made compact like 7 and you can get full aero.

    Don't remember what programs I used but I managed to get aero snap and simi 7 like taskbar functionality in Vista.

    Yeah a lot of good XP to Vista or 7 transformer packs have been made.

    Vista to Mac:

    Not the greatest but vary simple and does a pretty good job all around.

    Found another old linux screen too:
