Personal Question

what do ur desktops look like

seriously tho, i'm curious. i had this idea crop up in my head last night and i'd thought it'd be fun

lemme start by showing off my shitty old desktop as an icebreaker:

plain, basic, boring; you could find blades of grass more interesting than this desktop.

if you couldn't already tell by the taskbar being broken at the bottom right, this is actually Windows 10! As a little project, I decided to give my pc a bit of a nostalgic makeover. Fortunately, it didn't take much effort to find the WinXP wallpapers in a reasonable resolution. It took a bit more, however, to actually find both an XP Luna skin that didn't completely break in Win10 as well as a skin app that could apply it; And don't even get me started on the tedious process of applying the appropriate soundfont. Yes, i even got it to sound like WinXP!

So, why all the effort just to make it look and sound both old and basic?

Well, it was all to commemorate the old family PC. Simple as that. That old hunk of junk kicked the bucket years ago, but I still remember learning all I know about the internet through it. Couldn't just leave it as a distant memory, so I had it live on through my current PC

Plain, basic, boring; just how I remember it

As you can tell, this blog was mostly an excuse to talk about my shitty desktop.

Feel free to ramble on about your own desktops in the comments! I'd like to hear the stories behind them, if there is any to them that is.

Ciao.

the old windows aesthetic always gives a feeling of comfy nostalgia, also your desktop looks really cool :D

deus ex: nice, sonic adventure: NICE
I totally relate to everything u say in this blog hahah! I've actually thought about making an Arch Linux skin that looks like XP just because I miss our old home computer so much.
Now I have a mac which is nice but I still miss XP https://i.imgur.com/eLasTqW.png my desktop looks pretty boring
