    I personally really like mine. Everything you see there has been scripted by hand in JS and html:

    My desktop does have lots of shortcuts on it, but I feel it's only fair to make an exception since it's so much cleaner looking then usual.

    www.tsdesk.com

    These shells are really expandable so you can basically start with any of them and work from it to make your's completely original. They also come with really good instructions if you don't know html beforehand.

    Best of all it's completely free (which I guess is kinda obvious since it would be pretty hard to copy-protect something done with an interpreted language like html...)

    anyways, have fun :) .

    google Rainlendar. It's an excellent piece of freeware that provides countless calendar skins. I'm pretty sure that most of the people who have desktop calendar's are using that software.

    BTW, kudos to the person above who's started using an HTML shell ;) .

    In my opinion, personal opinion. :p

    Me, I think that calendars and weather and clock and stuff aren't "clean", but obviously many think that they are and cleanliness = no icons. :)

    I don't remember what I had in my last screenshot, but right now I'm running Windows Classic with My Computer and the Recycle Bin, plus an icon for Morrowind, and that's it.

    I haven't played Morrowind in quite a bit though, so I might replace it with Empire at War..

    I would hide some of the system tray icons but Aston doesn't support that as far as I can tell. I think it should still count as clean...

    And with all the menus open...
