Flickr user Thomas put this desktop together to celebrate the successful Orion test flight last month. A great, simple wallpaper and a few well-placed skins, and we feel like we’re in orbit too. Here’s how he set it up.
You’ve probably seen this wallpaper in previous featured desktops, but Thomas makes it look at home in his setup. If you like its look, here’s what you’ll need to set it up yourself:
That’s about it. Thomas tweaked some of the skins’ text sizes so they looked better on his screen, and you can do the same on your setup. If you have questions about how to set everything up or make it work, hit the Flickr link below to visit Thomas’ page and ask how he made it all happen. Make sure to let him know we sent you and we loved his work when you go!
