At first look, that Winamp is atrocious, and doesn't match. You could also change the Winamp icon to a matching b&w which is availible. In addition you could pick matching dock icons. On an upside I like that clock, I had wanted a wallclock like that one.

2 Pyro_ - :) at first - I did NOT want to create a FULLY b&w desk. You can find a 10K such desk here and all over the web. And I do not loke abstract and practicali unusable textual or simlpe b&w icons. You must quickly find what you need without searching all over the desk for needed icon. IMHO all FULLY b&w desks are unusable. And I wanted to have a usable one. So - I needed only a b&w wallpaper and widgets. Everything esle is just for me. And I do NOT want to have MATCHING but UNUSABLE winamp skin. I find current one matching and comfortable in use. So, thenks for commenting. But your critisising I do not except :)

@carry : You can still have usability with different icons. You must accept criticism if you want to learn how to custo properly...... trust me! I am a baby custoer to!

It isn't exactly like Pyro_ is asking you to reshack anything.

I meant the systray icon for Winamp to match your other systray icons. And you need not black and white icons for the dock even, but you have them all default. Default is evil. And as for the Winamp skin there are PLENTY of usable skins that are better then that one. It simply looks horrible with the rest of your desktop.

As for me - it's more easely to reshak than to find USABLE third party icons to collect a COMPLETE set. Without a complete one it's all for nothing.
About right custo - don't ya see the main thing 'bout allmost all shots here? They are all about candy like picture and are unusable in every day work. these shots are just a pictures of UNREAL moments with all uncustomizable or UNMATCHABLE apps closed. and noone doesn't ask their authors a simple quastion - 'how do you people work with all that "cute" and "smooth/plain" stuff?' And know what? I'll tell you how - they open UNCUSTOMIZED apps with unhackeble GUIs and work like all the others. So - why should I custo my USABLE dock with MATCHING stuff? I know I cannot find such icons for ALL apps in my dock. Only for popular ones. And what about the others? should I put them away for the dock? No, thanks. I'll never do that because I WORK with that stuff. And my desk is not just an eye candy. It's my working place. and it must be at first USABLE and COMFORTABLE. So my shots allways be REAL ones. Not TUNED to be eye candy just for a few seconds.

And, buddy, I know what it is 'bout GOOD criticizm. That one by Pyro_ was just a self-reklama. For example - I'll never talk friendly to a person writin' "who da hell lives in Europe?:)" etc. I dislike glam girls:).

P.S.: man, do NOT ever again call me a "baby" in something. I was a baby. Long ago. Before started making money myself. So, please, leave words like "noobz", "babyz" etc. outside when writin' comments to my works. Ok? ^)

And 'bout words "default is evel"- Jeezzz what a childish nonsense. Good default is sometimes better then unusable customization. :)

Pyro_ says:

Your thoughts are interesting.
And the Winamp icon is part of a COMPLETE icon set just like the ones in your systray.
Hows about you found your thoughts on correct information huh. But I'm done with you. Tried to educate you and failed. Quite obvious by your poorly written posts.

carry says:

:)))))))))))))))))) girl, I have NO systray icon shortcats. that winamp icon is just a part of opened window link. Is that difficult to see? :))))))
And thanks but do not need "edication" from glam 16 years old girl without understanding how to handle herself with other people:). Good luck in SELF educatin' :). you'll need it.

Pyro_ says:

Oh dear lord you're slow. Check out: At the very top right is a black and white systray icon for Winamp. I don't give a crap what you think it's called, but that's what is. 16x16 icon maybe you'll understand.

If you change yours in the Winamp options you can change the on in your taskbar. Maybe some one can explain to you what these terms mean for Macs. AND you DO have systray icons at the top right of YOUR screen shot. Again I don't care what you think they are.

But I am not 16, you're merely 22, and unfortunately you don't act like it, like many other stupid males who don't mature properly. I am sorry for you, you aren't one of the smarter mature ones.

But please learn how to formulate a PROPER SENTANCE. Grammer, punctuation, all that good stuff.

2 Pyro - "at the top right corner" I DO NOT HAVE a winamp shortcat. The one on the LEFT is A PART OF OPENED APP WINDOW LINK. AND IT DOESN'T stay THERE AFTER WINAMP IS CLOSED. Is that difficult? Or is it just you?:)
'Bout my comments - english is my 4-th language. And surely not native one:). So, girl, think twice and then write something here. Your thoughts and words make me LOL and even ROLF :)))))).

carry, with all that time used to write those essays, you could reshack all your default icons (reshack e.t.a./icon = 15 secs). Anyways, this screenshot need a lot of work.

er... ok, everyone in here is being childish. Pyro, if we doesn't want to accept criticism after your first comment, there weren't reason to go with further opinions. It's like talking to a wall. Carry, man, what's with that attitude? chill mate, try to accept comments if you are submiting a SS to this site, almost always are meant to improve your desk. Usability is different for everyone. Neato Burrito gosh, i should remove that.

Sorry... an admin could remove our multiple replies. I have problems, I won't talk to walls anymore. But don't remove that! It should be on the front page. =)

Its clear the carry loves his desktop and he has a strong view of default.

Lets let him go that way, because we have our own views on things!
