I am growing very bored of the default Windows 7 UI... I want something new.

Actually would like a transparent dockbar similar to OSX, but I don't want it centered.

RocketDock or ObjectDock would be the way to go. Skyy mentioned before Nexus Dock. I would try Xwindows dock

Pair that alongside with a Win7 OSX VS and it's good to go

I figured it out. It's basically the same as with Windows XP and the uxtheme patching, only more annoying and obtuse. Picked up a nice transparent/white skin and replaced the Start orb with something more fitting.

I've been messing with Rainmeter and various other system monitor tools, but I am dismayed. There does not seem to be an "all in one" solution. Rainmeter does a lot but it doesn't do GPU status. Actually, most HW monitors do not do GPU status!

Maybe I just can't figure it out, but what I'd like to do is have a minimalist, simple yet attractive text side panel with a clock, calendar, CPU utilization (all cores) + temp, GPU utilization + temp, RAM + swap utilization, network utilization, HDD status and so on. I gather that Rainmeter can do all of this but I haven't been able to make it do so.

Edit: Oh yeah, here's my new UI. Visual style is Windows 7 Shine 2.0. Start Orb is "Mac-like Windows Orb" by Ring of Hell.

I wonder if I can edit the already-created visual style to change the glows on the minimize/maximize and window/fullscreen buttons to glow silver or white instead of blue?

Spoiler for 1366x768:


I have a few other themes, one I like that's a translucent black and goes nicely with an Android-style Home icon replacement for the Start Orb. But it doesn't match this wall too well.

Well with a avatar + signature, and now a desktop background, it wouldn't be surprising if anyone fell in love with Kotonoha They all look magnificently adorable.

Hah... well, interestingly enough, if you were to actually watch School Days, you wouldn't look at her the same way again. I just find myself to be forgiving and able to overlook... certain things...

Plus, I think I'm just going through another "phase" where I find myself obsessed with another anime character...

Oh this might be interesting

Also that desktop featuring Kotonoha as a Yandere is scary o.o... (After reading up Kotonoha) (I found out she is really a Yandere, or was that another character?)

Both main female leads of School Days both end up becoming Yanderes... Personally, I am able to overlook this quality of Kotonoha, and see the cute, sweet, and innocent girl she is underneath all that... though her Yandere-ness is something that often overshadows everything else about her.

pfft, it's shooped. :P

And Kotonoha's yandere qualities are what make her so perfect! I know she will always be faithful, and if anyone tries to tempt me, she will just cut off their arms and legs and skip rope with their intestines or something! (<----- Yandere fanboy)

Well... I do not know exactly how to take a SS of my desktop, since Snagit is out of its Free Trial, and I don't know any other programs that take a picture, so I'll just post the image of the background. (Just stacking the icons to the right of the image helps still )

Spoiler for Picture:


(I swear this was bigger when I stretched it on my laptop, and it still looked fine.. Must be Photobucket's work)

NO! The fight is over when I say (in proper context!!) "Mr. Wang, I give you permission to marry Kotonoha Katsura, holy yandere of earth. May she rip out you lungs and rape your intestines, should you stray away from her unexceptional love."

You got that?!

I am not sure than I want to know how it would be possible for her to do that.
