Desktops of the Week for 3/11 - 3/17/07

David Chartier

Our TUAW Desktop of the Week is a triple play this time around, and we have a little bit of everything to show. The first of this week's three featured desktops is at the top of this post, and it hails from Flickr user jcsizmadi. We dig it both for the subtle style of icon organization and use of the iStat app, but also because the wallpaper is home-grown. Jcsizmadi runs, and this image is freely available in two different resolutions.

This next desktop from Flickr user bwana is a nice multitasking example, with a video playing in Path Finder, some IRC action in Colloquy, what looks like some sort of command line Twitter client, a Terminal session, Adium and... something else in the bottom left. Bwana's menubar isn't exactly lying down on the job either.

Last but not least is a bizarre, perhaps even controversial, melding of software universes. The desktop you see before you is from Flickr user jnxyz, and it uses a transparent ShapeShifter theme to bring a bit of Vista's patented Transparency Everywhere™ style to Mac OS X (notice the black, shiny menubar), as well as some custom iPhone-like icons to round out a unique meeting of the OSes.

If you'd like to see your unique, functional or otherwise interesting desktop featured in our TUAW Desktops of the Week series, check out past featured desktops as well as the original post for the rules and to get an idea of what we're looking for. Then, upload your desktop screenshot to our TUAW Desktops Flickr group. We'll feature one or more desktops each weekend, giving credit to the desktop owner, wallpaper creator and any apps featured in the screenshot (if available). Keep those desktops rolling in!
