Over on our Facebook page, Panda Nguyen shared his desktop in the comments of our post about last week’s featured desktop—well, we liked it so much, we had to feature it too. It may look like Steam is built-in, but it’s not—it just fits very well. Here’s how he set it all up.

Here’s what you’ll need to set it all up:
That’s all there is to it. This one isn’t too heavy on skins and tools, and it’s both informative but non-distracting all at the same time. If you have trouble getting your setup to look just so, or want to know more about how everything is modified to work this way, just head on over to the Flickr link below to ask your questions or sing your praises.
