New desktop theme on my main XP Machine. THE HDD in the laptop is dead, getting a new one soon though!

I am a huge Star Wars nerd, and thus am in love with this.

The recently leaked Windows 8 Build 7955 . . .

The default background colour of the desktop wallpaper is green. I changed it to a shade of blue.

Yes, it still looks a lot like Windows 7, simply because it's an early milestone build. Newer and
updated elements of the interface will surface in later builds heading towards the public beta.

Currently using a custom made Star Wars windows 7 theme.

Yoda is my favorite character. And I even made a sound pack to go with it.

If you would like the themepack, just PM me.

Very colorful, John, but too scary for the likes of me. :-)

I have other more friendly images of Yoda, that one was just my favorite because it shows Yoda's intense side. Something that isn't featured a lot in the films.
