Did I mention that I got a new laptop when I came back from Kabul? I think I did, haha. Anyway, with plenty of “RAM” to spare, my fingers have been itching for a complete makeover of the desktop.
I have done it before – here and here but as usual, when the theme goes up, the performance goes down. So, after a couple of days feeling happy with the “look”, I often disable the theme and go back to the boring looking screen.
Now with the extra RAM, I added Object Dock and checked on the performance and it looked good.
I thought of “apple-ising” the theme, so I used Window Blinds and downloaded a cool looking wallpaper, more tweaks and presto, I got this:-
Performance has been holding up with an average 20% – 25% usage of the RAM which is quite good. The startup has been fast and I even tried running a media player whilst running a few application, the additional RAM did not fail me.
With a Safari Beta for Windows browser (this browser has a lot to pick up though), make overlooks almost complete.
