Then prove it. Since the TechRepublic community often takes pride in technical know-how and ability, we'd like to see some of your most creative desktop customizations (regardless of what OS you use).
Send in your photo submissions along with your TR username and an explanation about why you think your customized desktop is the coolest.
[Update 9/1/10: The submissions are in, and now it's time for you to vote for the entry that is truly the "coolest customized desktop."]
