I finally got around to installing a Windows desktop manager that doesn't suck: LiteStep! Currently I'm using the Clear theme, and enjoying it very much. I made a few modifications to its theme.rc file, to handle better wrapping of the taskbar and non-squishing of the tray.

It's quite pretty, and eliminates such annoyances as desktop icons and the start button. You still have access to all of your menus (plus a couple of extra handy ones) through a right-click on the desktop (which is how things should be ;-) )

The wallpaper is gleaned from my new favorite site, Almost Smart.
