The Space Invaders Vista Desktop

Who says Vista doesn’t look as good as Windows 7?

Well, just about everybody does. But here’s an interesting desktop that with a great wallpaper, system stats, and all sorts of other stuff arranged into a bar at the bottom, not unlike Ubuntu, except better.

Here’s the details:

  • default aero theme
  • virtuawin for virtual desktops
  • samurize taskbar config for workspace switching, gmail counter, download counter
  • truelaunchbar for quicklaunch _menus_ , desktop menu and also the bar on the bottom for system meters
  • fences for desktop icons (hidden)
  • winamp with slightly color modded skin
  • wall: using the great Spacender icons of manuee, inspired by his icon preview.
