Cool Can anyone provide any cool tips for modding the Interface on my PC.

I was watching this You Tube Video and it was called "How to be a hacker" were as it should of been called "How to look like a hacker" .

Got me thinking, how would you do some pretty cool stuff on the PC like modify text and change the GUI. I'm not talking about downloading scripts or running complex programs.

Something simple.

You know the matrix films. The Green text they used in that film. Like all this holly wood hype. I mean its still pretty cool to mod your OS but what can I do. Change text, change desktop wallpapers, add widgets. Anything else.

I just feel like haveing spruce up.

You can do all that from within Windows.

Even easier then usually since it's open source and there's a bunch of stuff you can do.

RocketDock, Rainmeter, different UI (Gnome, XCFE, etc.).

I'm partial to Docky on Linux.
Here's an older screenshot of my system from about two years ago:

The menubar stuff is made to be like gnome 2.x: https://cinnamon-spices.linuxmint.com/applets/view/51
