Ok so this is my 10 year old desktop that i found in my screenshot collection :) I thought it was appropriate to post now that it has been 10 years since i pressed the printscreen button to capture this old 800x600 desktop.

Its kinda fun to study and see what im using. I know its an old Litestep theme that i have modded, winamp plugin, changed the icons (imac icon set) lots of virtual desktops etc :) Its good to see the ICQ icon in the systray.. good times :)

That's awesome!

The oldest screenshot of mine that I could find is also from 1999 (Win98SE as well); but it's nowhere near as customized as yours :)

Yeah, I do that too, for the same reasons. Documenting every "milestone" of when something happens on my desktop :P

Hey thanks for your comments.. or something :) The OS im using in the screen is Windows 98SE, note the little "my computer" icon :)

I remember when XP was released (2001), i was afraid that Litestep wouldn't work on XP.. but they fixed that :)
