Jeesh Mark, that res would drive me insane! o_O

For serious. Laptops in general drive me nuts though. I've been using 1600x1200+ since I started using PCs. Was very lucky with the displays and graphics cards I had access to. 1024x768 drives me nuts. ;) I paid a ton for my 1650x1080 LCD on my laptop a few years ago... but it was worth it.

The shot itself is older than dirt, but I've reverted back to using this wall/Litestep skin/general setup combo again lately.

Here is mine...I think it's fairly clean and simple, and I have also never been a fan of having lots of icons on the desktop, even on my Windows box which I tend to have more icons on than my Mac.

So yeah, I only have a folder on it right now for a companie's website I'm working on, half the time it's completely clean, the other half I might have 67543347657635 files on it. I see my computer desktop like a real life desktop, a work space, not something to trash with shortcuts and whatnot :p

WOW. can anyone help me set something like this up?

Without knowing exactly what he uses I can give you some general thing I use that create a similar setup.

~WindowBlinds: This is for the task bar, I have seen his theme (I may have it in my collection), but I do not remember the exact name.
~Rocketdock: This allows for programs to run in the dock on the left monitor.
~System Status: That is not the name of the program, but there are way to many to know exactly which one he uses, and I have never seen that style before.

Beyond that, he might have some minor tweaks but that is the major things I see.
