Wow man, looks like a guy could poke around in here for days and still not find everything! Looks interesting. I'll have to try it out!

Cool glad everyone's liking the new theme. Look for updates to come soon. (Current version lacks start button (i just r-click), calander, and improved user-end custimization. Maybe even color-changes are possible if there's interest.)

And remember comments not only help me but help you in getting the best there is to offer. So keep those comments coming.

Great Desktop!! This is what DX was made for.

Clicking the "bookend" on the right side of the common shortcut bar brings in some other icons that overlap the common ones making both unreadable.
Keep it up, looking forward to more stuff.

thanks! i'm playing around with some more icons and functionality, possibly even a built-in netradio/mp3 player...that's down the line though. if anyone has any ideas as to features they'd like to see, me a line.

Vetto - i know about that, it was a bit of laziness on my own part, i'll have to think of a way to close the other icons as those pop up. i'll see what i can do and upload a new version soon. maybe some sort of hide/show function. *shrugs* as for now, sorry.

This is a very desktop. I haven't configured anything specific yet, but not meaning to be overly picky, I find the need to add my 2 cents, just because I like this so much.

First, I really don't like the black edges. Looks like something is missing or didn't install properly.

Second, the text is way too small on my 1280 screen. I'd have to memorize stuff before I can use this with ease.

Third, a question.... did you design this so the taskbar can sit on the bottom? If so, very good. Esserant's Dojo WB is beautiful with this. If not, I'm missing something.

Fourth, the round media player in the upper right corner seems to not quite "go" with the rest of this theme.

Finally, I like gef's DX themes because I can get to links so easily. This one would require minimizing stuff first, which isn't what I'd personally like, which is why I like the taskbar active.

Having said all of the above, this is really inovative. In my opinion though, it just needs refinement. Great job!

thanks for your comments Dabe, this is what i'm looking for. now on to the answers...

1. the black edges were for my own benefit, the screen i'm working on isnt' quite what it once used to be and the edges are a bit - tweaked. this just cleans them up.

2. yeah, i'm running on a 1280 screen too. *scratches chin* it was a personal decision. i originally had the text, especially in the shortcuts, larger but felt it cluttered the screen too much. i guess i could bump the font size up a little, for the visually impared

3. no, you're not missing anything. the bottom was left for the taskbar, either with windowblinds/xp running, or there's one that comes with it - it' a hiding taskbar.

4. i've been saying that to myself for the past week. it's a graphics issue. the other graphics have a 50% transparency so it changes the hue slightly. i'll be fixing that in the new release soon.

as for the getting to stuff easier, i've been toying around with a layover screen that'll popup when windows are in full screen or if a button is clicked. it'll be -semi-transparent so you'll be able to see everything you need to and also get to the links also.

hopefully that'll be better.

i thank you again for your comments. they've given me some things to think about for future versions.

I agree with craig139 1600x1200 would be nice. Adding the ability to hide all windows is great plus the built integrated web viewer is really nice

The theme works well if all you're using your machine for is entertainment. I don't know what it is but the desktop still seems cluttered a bit...but it's probably just me
still, a very nice theme

736 downloads!!! really makes me want to do more themes

vetto had plans on porting this to 1600 res. but, i haven't heard back on anything definite. i'm currently working on a new theme but with any hope i'll be able to get back and possibly make that resolution jump for all of you soon.

still tinkering around with things though on this, so don't think i've abandoned this project. had an idea and needed to get that out of my system before getting back to this theme.

thanks to everyone's that downloaded and enjoyed the theme. look for more updates soon and that other theme that should be available soon, entitled 'minimalistic avocado'.
