Several nations ruled over the territory of what is now Texas. Spain was the first European country to claim the area of Texas.
France held a short-lived colony there. Mexico controlled the territory until 1836 when Texas won its independence, becoming an independent Republic.
In 1845, it joined the U.S. as the 28th state. The state's annexation set of a chain of events that caused the Mexican-American War in 1846.
A slave state, Texas declared its secession from the U.S. in early 1861, joining the Confederate State of America. After the war and its restoration to the Union, Texas entered a long period of economic stagnation.
That changed in the 20th century. Recently, there is the Texas Nationalist Movement which calls for the restoration of the Republic of Texas as a completly independent nation.
I am not sure how to have more than one picture in one post. I already post two for my desktop theme, this is the third to explain function. Hope it's not big deal. Anyways, this is illustration of my dead space theme. one thing in my mind is to make the theme practicle, everything has to serve a purpose.
This theme has "cpu usage, gup usage, sys mem, gpu mem, cpu temp, gpu temp, hdd, wifi, battery meter", "date/time", "useful link for app, url", etc.
fun part is, i make the life bar of suite as battery meter. plus the special skill bar of suite as cpu/mem meter.
I also make rss and quick link meter to be able to hide themselves by click icon, so save space for desktop when need.
cpu temp need speed fan, gpu temp need afterburner and the dll.
I enjoy rainmeter's enhancement on windows looking. my desktop is totally different now.
