I cleaned everything up into a folder so you could see the pic on the desktop.  Jay Faircloth created that fine bit of imagery.  You can get your own desktops from his .mac site.

Tetsu, what mods have you got on OSX? not the programs, but the themes. if you know what i mean.
For example, mine is using iMetal.
Ive also got ShadowClipboard 3, Relaunch, MenuCalendarClock in the menu bar, Docktop on the left, Overflow hidden via dockless and linked to F1 by OneKey, sizzlingkeys for iTunes management with various links to extra buttons on my Revolution VX, Growl, APE  um.... i think thats it.
and just to clarify, I dont have the HD on the desktop. I far prefer clicking on the Macintosh Face, and use the desktop as a cutting ground for temporary items.

iMetal is nice.. I've used it before. On the particular shot I posted here (I change out my theme every now and then). I was using Eternal Aqua... updated by someone at macthemes.net.

Now that you mentioned those other programs though typically I myself just use fruitmenu to launch my programs from a customised apple menu (I used to use dragthing but quit using that a while back) and I use the dock just for tasks\a few of the most used programs, I have growl and ape installed of course. The only icons I keep on my desktop are drive icons... as I don't like clutter but I do like having the drives on the desktop. I use WindowshadeX, VirtueDesktops (which will have something similar in Leopard with Spaces), Cleardock (to change the color\opacity of the dock). I use silk to change my system font and I am using Century Gothic.  I gave several things to control iTunes a go but I find that I don't really need them.. I don't use them much when I have them. Oh yeah.. and Xounds with a simple glass sound set (unlike some I like system sounds in Mac OS).

With LL's new avatar I thought he was Quicksilver till I read the post.
In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.

lol... that is harsh. i say we set up a new poll as for who has to change their avatar.... LL or QS... but dont tell them, just get them to vote.

also, for one day, and one day only, we need to change LL's username to Michael Yaroshibobble in homage to his surname.

Actually, I linked Mike to that desktop (it's already one of my favorites).  We were already talking about the whole QS/LL avatar thing . . . they are pretty close, but I have to say that mine is cooler.  ;)  Here's all of mine over the years (for the chronically bored out there):--------------------

Anyway, my desktop background rotates every few days.  This is my current desktop:
