I love a nice sleek Blackbox, or Fluxbox desktop with wallpaper changing every 5 minutes. I have a collection of about 3,000 images that I constantly rotate.

This is not my desktop, but a good example of how I like them set up. GKrellm, transparent terminals but the icons are not necessary. YUM.

And quick.

When I got a new laptop last summer I also got Windows7 along with it. One of the new things I noticed was that it was possible to have slideshow of your pictures in your own picture folder as desktop background. As I no longer have a static background I find it quite pointless to take screenshot if it.

Sure! The application that I'm running is called Rainmeter, and I'm using a skin called Omnimo UI (Windows Phone 7) for it, although there are many more to choose from. Probably best to do some Google as there's a lot to choose from. Some look a lot fancier than others, but I find Omnimo's widgets to be particularly useful which is why I'm sticking with it. It can take a little while to get the skins customized properly but the end result is usually pretty good!

It's a new laptop that I just got today so it's kind of barren. It's a lot better than a netbook with Windows 7 starter. You can't even customize your desktop background on Win7 Starter.
