Windows Desktop Mods

By Deane Barker on July 23, 2006

A beginner’s guide to customization, skinning and shell replacements: A long article with a look at some fairly stunning Windows skins and desktop mods. You can make your Windows machine look like a tricked-out Linux distro without too much work. Lots of screencaps

I must be new at this, because the author divides things up in ways I’d never considered:

  • Application Launchers
  • Desktop Widgets
  • Shell Replacements
  • Shell Switchers
  • Skinning

I don’t think about this stuff enough, I guess.
