Excellent skin! This is definately one that I will be using a lot. What info bar did you use at the top of the screen? I am currently using WindowBlinds 5.0. Do I upgrade to Object Desktop to use it?

Hi billthecat,

At the top of the screen is the free sysmetrix program and a skin I made to go with this theme. Here is the http://www.wincustomize.com/ViewSkin.aspx?SID=1&SkinID=2175&LibID=28





Thanks for the compliment!

Always cool to see people inspired by Frank Herbert. Although I seem to remember red being Atreides colour.

Thanks for the compliment gigglerx. As to the colors Mr. Zodiachus, I was taking some "artistic license" In the Dune Game the eagle symbol was blue, and the Atreides color blue. In other things I had read, the Atreides colors were black and green. There were some recent skin submissions that color, thus the decision to follow the wrong colors. Frank Herbert's son stated that the Atreides colors started out black and green, and later changed to green and white in the books - http://www.caveofbirds.com/faqherbertanderson.html.

I also found a post in a forum on many of the houses colors: http://dune2k.com/forum/index.php?topic=16004.msg270377

Again, I took some liberties here. I hope the Dune faithful can overlook my transgression

As a Dune fan from long back - can't say I'm that offended...

Hi Citizen Xzi,
It installs like any other skin here at WinCustomize. If you have WindowBlinds installed correctly and the file associations aren't messed up, just by clicking on download, it should add the skin to your collection. Then go into your Skin Browser and find the House Harkonnen skin and click on "Apply this skin now".
