Featured Desktop: Martin Wisniewski

This is the very wide desktop of Martin Wisniewski. You’ll want to click the image to see a larger version on Flickr. My guess is that the desktop is so wide because it is stretched across two monitors.

This very customized Windows 7 desktop has a Mac look and a scifi flavor. Because the resolution has been reduced so much, it’s hard to make out all the details, but what intrigues me most is the timeline stretching across the center of the screen. My guess is that it’s a really creative way for Martin to display his calendar. Does anyone know how he achieved the effect?

This desktop would have to be the most different we have received so far. Being a huge fan of scifi, I love it!

So, what do you think of Martin's desktop? Let us know in the comments.

Would you like your desktop featured on Envato Notes? Upload your screenshot somewhere on the Web and let us know about it on our Write a Post page. Or upload it to Flickr and tag it with #envatonotesdesktops. Either way, add an interesting description. Each week we'll choose and publish a new screenshot.

What are you doing for International Freelancers Day?

International Freelancers Day

Tomorrow (Friday, September 23) is International Freelancers Day. It’s a day to treat yourself and sit back and think about all the wonderful things you do as a freelancer.

International Freelancers Day is a global initiative to celebrate independent workers, their entrepreneurial spirit and the tremendous impact they have on economic growth. The celebration will center on a free online conference with Envato’s own Sean Hodge as one of the presenters.

So what are you planning to do? I’m going to treat myself to curry and a movie. Probably not both at the same time…
