Customization: August 2012 Desktop

About a month of using a Mac has finally convinced me of one thing: the iMac is Good. It has impressed me through and through, right from the display quality and build down to the aesthetics. And if you’re wondering if Apple has managed to convert yet another PC user, the answer is a strong no. There are just too many nuances about using OSX that I could not bear with.

Anyhow, we have another desktop, this time a minimal Win7 setup, along with my recent favorite skin for foobar2000, Metro.

The setup is simple, featuring Rainmeter as usual, but also having some additional tricks.

Tools and Skins used:

Work VII
Rainmeter 2.4

To install Work VII theme:

  1. Get and run Universal Theme Patcher if you don’t have it already!
  2. Patch the system files (this step is necessary to use shell customizations, which almost all themes rely on)
  3. Copy theme files to WindowsResourcesThemes
  4. Open the .theme/.themepack file to install theme
  5. Done!
