So for a few weeks now I have been playing around with a themed desktop for my mac. I have always wanted to try something like this out just never had the guts or time. I have found that it isn’t scary at all and rather quick to get going. There are some free tools I have used and some nice things I have learned along the way.desktop1

Not having a dock at all has taken some getting used to. I use Quicksilver for just about everything now. I do have a pull down docklike thing at the top middle in case I ever need it. Here is a list of tools I have used to create my new desktop.

CandyBar – Change all the folders icons and HD icons.
Magnifique – Change the folder and App nav areas to black
GeekTool – Add time, weather, and computer status to the desktop.

GeekTool was by far the most fun. You can do much more with it than what I have done here. If you come up with something good for you I’d love to see it.
