    Okay, I found what I was looking for. That company that makes Fences also makes a launcher called ObjectDock that completely hides the taskbar. Now my desktop is how I want it:

    This is what I did since following the thread yesterday. My wallpaper is rotating SWTOR wallpapers dealing with Sith/Sith Warrior.

    The boxes on the left are the default skin that comes with rainmeter, the box at the top is Gmail Checker, the right date is the from the Simple Media link that was first posted with rainmeter, and then the music player (which I actually just edited in Paint.NET because the speakers looked fugly to me) is MM12 Player, all found on Customize.org

    The dock at the bottom is ObjectDockFree, available from Stardock.

    however I have a pretty large desktop collection and this rainmeter thing looks neat, so maybe some magic will happen

    few reasons:

    completely uncluttered

    if i do have something on the desktop it is immediately easy to find

    also, it helps me use my computer for actual things because im no longer just getting lost staring into my background. (which honestly used to be a problem)

    edit: and it's easier on the eyes than straight white or black. or any other color for that matter.

    I can't post a picture of the desktop on my laptop ('cause there's work stuff) but wait until you guys see my desktop's desktop.

    I think some of you will have seizures. But I can find everything, dammit.

    What makes a man turn neutral? Lust for gold? Power ? Or were you just born with a heart full of neutrality?

    hey, don't be like that! I used to use this except larger:

    but then I discovered the wonders of windows vista on onward's preset solid color background, their soothing allure and the clean fresh feeling of a bare desktop

    NSFW 'cause of titties:

    no
    nope

    Between these and the Rainmeter skin posted earlier, my desktop looks a lot like a magazine cover. I'm tempted to run with it some more and see how stylish I can make it look.

    I'm pretty sure you can't link titties even if you say they're NSFW. I mean, I was banned for 3 months over it back in '08.

    Even artistic ones? Good to know. Removing the original links.

    Man this rainmeter skin enigma is kind of cool but EVERYTHING IS SO TINY.

    Simplemedia is so much better.

    Man I used to sink days into customizing my desktop and it has gotten so much easier these days, and CPUs have gotten so much better and I have so much more RAM so it does not slow down my computer a bit anymore.

    Also Fences is neat.

    It really depends on the circumstances I think. The AC has some artboobs you are allowed to link to. But overall they are forbidden?

    The general consensus seemed to be: "I lost that link...does anyone have it?" "Nah, I lost it too."

    So good on you for posting it :P
