I did it for a change. It was pretty rough at first, but now I kinda like it.

@sagesebas: I don't think you can get the recycle bin icon off your desktop in XP, otherwise that wouldn't be there either. =/
 
And as far as moving the taskbar around goes, yes, very weird. I think top is crazier than left though.

@wrathofconn: There is a way to take it off. I did it back when I still had XP, but it's a really long and rather annoying way that involves downloading weird registry files. You'll probably find it's not worth the trouble.

@Skytylz:  Classy. I've got a few Calvin and Hobbes wallpapers, yours is good.
 
@DanielJW: Yeah, I'm not concerned enough to mess with registry stuff. This half-solution just occurred to me, and I feel good about it.

I could be wrong, but if you right click on the desktop there should be an option you can uncheck under "View".

This is just what it is at this very second. I use the Win7 rolling desktop thing so it takes from a folder of a couple of hundred wallpapers and changes every 3 minutes. Also, the taskbar belongs on the bottom. What's wrong with you people.

@tdk08:  Huh, how simple. The menu wasn't called 'View' but I found the option you were talking about. Thanks for the tip, can't believe I didn't know that existed.

@Sparky_Buzzsaw: I could give you it and a few others like it if you want. They come from my rare ventures in to /wg/ on 4chan. It's the only place I still allow myself to visit on that site.  
 
But let me know if you do want that one, or others like it. I have a couple, but I have to jet right now. I'll get back to you on it!

@NoDeath:  Nice. Is the P4 clock a rainmeter thing or just a Windows 7 add-on you found?
 
@DanielJW: /wg/ can definitely be useful. That's where I got mine as well.

Absolutely, yeah.  I used to be a huge CG art fanatic a few years back, but I've kinda fallen out of it.  It'd be great to have a few awesome CG screensavers like that.  Hit me up with a PM and we'll get it sorted out.

Since my computer got fixed I've been lazy and just went back to an old P4 wallpaper that I had lying around. I should really get a new one soon.

 The video file is just there for kicks.

Made some drastic changes, just playing around with stuff for now. Might add a rainmeter clock if I decide to keep the system clock hidden.

@DanielJW: Yeah it is really odd, but I like it better than if it was on the left or top. I want to know if I can put the scroll bar on the left instead of the right in Firefox though, because otherwise it looks like ass to have the scroll bar right next to the taskbar.
 
@SmashedControllers: No problem duder, I'm leaving town in the morning so I figured I'd get this started tonight.

Ok, I've probably just about finished mine for now, at least until I get back from this trip I'm about to take. Hiding the taskbar fixed my OCD from earlier. May have to try out different clocks in the future as well but it's decent for now.
