Pimped Desktop Ryan Farley gives the lowdown on his tricked out desktop.

In the past I’ve tried to get into tricking out the desktop, but everytime I switched to a new computer, I felt less and less inclined to do invest the time. Besides, I remember some of these programs would slow down the OS. I like my desktop to be lean and mean.

But after seeing Ryan’s screenshot, I may have to consider playing around with some of the customizations.

It’s funny to me how many geeks I know would dread spending time selecting drapery and customizing the small details of their house (“Pick any color, honey. I don’t care.”) yet will obsess over every pixel of their desktop.
