Since the last time we looked at a great dual monitor desktop you guys liked it, we figured we’d highlight another one. Orbmiser’s desktop is pretty simple—it’s Windows 7, running a few discontinued Yahoo widgets that still, somehow, manage to work on his desktop. Here’s what he uses, and what you’ll need if you want to get the same effect on your system:
Because Orbmiser is still using Yahoo! Widgets, you can go grab them from a third party source that still has the installer if you want (the calendar and weather widgets were bundled, so you can technically still use them), just be careful and only download them from a trustworthy source, since the software is so old. If you don’t want to go that route, our old friend Rainmeter can give you a similar result. If you like what you see, head over and check out Orbmiser’s Flickr page, linked below. He even has a similar setup using KDE Plasema 5 runing on Manjaro if you’re a Linux user!
