Martin,
This is the most practical, usefull theme that I have ever seen. Quite a step outside of the same-ol-same that has been around. Fantastic job.
Had a bit of an issue trying to unload it. Right clicked on the systray icon, chose exit and nothing happened. Had to unload desktopX to get it off.

I can't begin to rate this high enough, so 5 stars will have to do.

Thanks!!

This is amazing! Looking for feedback? [Stop here if you aren't. You can let it go at "This is amazing"]

[Good job, I knew you'd keep reading]
Desktop tab: Wouldn't change a thing. I especially loved the way the search targeted the Browse tab.
Information tab: The weather forcast might be a toggle. Why shoudl IO move my nouse to close a window if I am not going to interact otherwise.
Note tab: Would like option to change font via interface. Would like the edit window to appear where my mouse is. Again, why make the user move?
Music tab: Perfectly functional. I don't quite understand the purpose of showing what the player is. Either I know or I don't care. But that's me.
Browser tab: Perfectly functional.

The color scheme is

Excellent stuff Martin. Only thing I found coincides with Phoon, Exit working. Also doesn't look like Autorun is working either. Outside of that, great work!

WOW!
Thought I had finally found the theme I was
going to stick with until Now - a Desktop that
is functional & Great looking. You will be added
to my watch list - That is if you can improve
on this one.

Very nice. Loaded easily for me. I'm running Windows xp and the newsest version of desktop x. For the music tab. I would rather use itunes here or another media player. It should also fi9nd my music file automatically. I like the easy way you allow us to edit on the quick links area. Every theme I download I want to customize alittle and I find it painful to use desktop x to edit a theme. Look forward to your update or some more widgets that work with the theme. What windowsblind do you recomend to load with the theme?

Bob >> I just started using the cubism suite/theme and it works well. I am also using WMP10 but having no problems.
Martin >> still awesome an hour later. That's about 58 minutes longer than most DX desktops last for me.

Is there a way to add my own folders to the drop-down list on the desktop tab?

Thanks,

Thanks for all the positive feedback guys

The "Exit" and "Autorun" does need fixing - apologies - it was going to be a widget, but widgets won't stay at desktop level which kind of ruined the plan and I forgot to amend this. I'll see if I can incorporate some of the requested features such as custom folders to navigate to.

As for the media playing - it uses DXPlayer which can be configured to use iTunes or WMP or whatever you want. ALthough I appreciate that there are advanced features I could incorporate by using specific players, I won't be doing so as I want to keep the work level down. Keep the comments coming - I'll do what I can to incorporate what you want time permitting.

BTW - it should be resolution independant from about 1024x768 upwards, but if anyone notices anything out of place then let me know.

Martin, AWESOME. I'm running a 1920x1200 resolution and it works perfectly fine. Awesome job. I do have a couple of requests. I use MS Outlook to manage my list of tasks. Is there any way to have the "notes" section possibly sync with Outlook in anyway? It would seem redundant for me to be listing tasks/notes in two different places.
Two, would it be possible in your browser tab to have a "links" section?
Otherwise, rock on!
