This is my April desktop modded to look like Windows Longhorn Concept Build 4087. Needed a change from 'Vista.'

Sidebar by me (Samurize).

Hilled SE Visual Style by Jemaho.

Comments welcome.

The progress bar off WMP did not work?

How you use the Samurize plugin for the progress bar in WMP?

I can not do this in Vista ...

It was just part of the plugins I was using. Some of them don't work with Vista, but others do. Good luck!

Will you release that sidebar or it's just for you? It looks great! And how did you chopped the taskbar???


Thanks, likydiky.


P.D.: Can you say me please if my april desktop in my gallery looks like vista or not??

Oh, and I did not intend to release the longhorn sidebar, but it will be included in an update of sidebar 4. When that will be I can't say. And I got it to cut off the taskbar by placing a corner of the wallpaper behind the sidebar background and running the instance as "always on top." Just a cheap trick really.

Thanks for the comment :) , and about the cutted-off taskbar, clever trick heh...

Again, nice desktop.

Your screenie does look like Vista--just a bit off. Does your GPU support glass?
likydiky's avatar
Wow... it looks exactly like Longhorn... with the "chopped" clear taskbar, longhorn shells, buttons, style, it has even the build tag!!!
