[ended] Omnimo 6 Release +$100 Contest

Journal Entry: Wed Oct 16, 2013, 12:30 PM
+ $100 Desktop Contest

Ladies and Gentlemen

After almost 18 months, we're finally proud to announce
The Grand release of Omnimo 6.0.
The biggest
Most important
And likely, the last major update
In the lifecycle of this project.

Life's circumstances have a tendency to change rapidly, and indeed, both of us (me and Xyrfo) had experienced rather significant changes which kept us from activelly working on this project. We started it as we were teenagers, but we've grown up and our new lives have begun. Perhaps Omnimo is a tribute to this transition; a hobbyist project that had become more serious with every release. We put our faith in the hope that our efforts were not in vain, and that the long wait had been worth it.

In our previous releases, we hesitated making the changelog out of fear that we won't cover everything that we've worked on. Incidentally, it's also the case for Omnimo 6.0 - we've improved it so much, I don't even know where to begin describing it. Instead, I'll leave it up to you to see and experience the new features.

In the next several weeks, I will try to produce a series of Informational bulletins that will showcase some of the features, both obvious and hidden - revolving around this new version.

TL;DR: It's here

Meanwhile, to celebrate the Grand Release,
we're officially announcing a contest:


We like to see how people use Omnimo, and even more so the interesting ideas people come up with. There had been similar contests before which were quite fun. This time we have fantastic prizes!

Omnimo must be used as the centerpiece
Do not use any age inappropriate material on your desktop
You may enter up to 3 screenshots
Screenshots must be preferably PNG and submitted to Customization>Screenshots>Windows
To enter, post a comment with the link or thumbnail to your Deviation in the comments section of this journal
Do not use multiple DeviantArt accounts to get more entries


Your desktops will be judged both by us and by the community. There won't be a specific standard of measurement for quality or originality, so pretty much everyone has a chance of winning.

The best desktops may be subject to a voting / poll, for 3 days after the contest is over. Winners will be announced after 2 weeks and 3 days from now, prizes to be paid in cash by PayPal transfer (can be negotiated if you don't have PayPal), we'll be spending a whooping $100 out of our lunch money for the prizes:

Let the games begin, may the odds be ever in your favor.
And remember: participation matters.

Hi everyone ! :) Let's talk about my actual projects and news :)

- ARTwil
I've created a Facebook page, called ARTwil :) Go here :…
This page will include links and pictures of Windows 8, concepts and metro apps :) There will be some deviations from me and of my dA freinds, in particular Andreas Chris and Brebenel Silviu :) And there will be news of Windows 8 and Microsoft ^^

- YouMetroTube
The YMT project continues :) after Fullscreen Player (…), the 1st part of my channel concept (…) and the YouTube tile in the 4h concept of W8 startscreen (…), the next YMT arts will be (for the moment) :
• Starting YouTube
• 2nd part of My Channel concept
• YouTube tiles (square and rectangle forms)

- Omnimo
I've the project to create new panels for Omnimo 5.0 for Rainmeter :D I'll submit a picture to show you how the new versions of Weather, Mail, Contact, People and Music panels will be :) after this picture, i'll post a RAR file with the 5 principal folders to put in the folder C:\Users\*user name*\Documents\Rainmeter\Skins\WP7\InstalledPanels\#Windows8 :) i'm sure you will like this :)

Be patient, and don't forget to see my 2 last deviations (Startscreen concept 4 :… ; deviantART Metro :…) !
After using omnimo for around 2 weeks I thought that it would be great to spread out the word for anyone who has not seen this awesome Rainmeter "skin".

To be honest I would not even call it a skin because it is way more than that.
For anyone who is bored by the standard windows7 UI well you know what you will be spending your next hour on !

The Omnimo UI is based on Windows 8 Metro UI (for anyone who has not seen the Metro UI yet:… )

I am not a man who writes a lot. I rather let images speak:

So Omnimo 4.0 has been out for a while and I was waiting for the time to get around to doing an advertisement for fun. So here it is, and it's quite possibly one of my personal best achievements.
