Yes, it seems that the OS pack will take the Bacon!

It ought to to be a fairly interesting skinning object...

...Come to think of it, any of them would. :P

Edit: wrong ought!

ok this is a real noob question from me but if we go with the OS pack someone has to explain what an it is because I've zero idea what you are all talking about.

pouting I want to do a car which is the only thing I voted for

OMA :cry:

We are basically making/ skinning an operating system, with 4 pics (Boot up, Login, etc.) look on top for all 4

I hope its Os..

Anyway will i be disqualified if if i start now?

It is already October...

It's okay, oma. Voting isn't over yet!

An OS stands for Operating System. Windows XP is an Operating System. Do you know what you see on your computer when you have no programs or anything open? You see the Desktop, with icons, a background image, and your Taskbar, which has the 'Start' button on it. That is what we would be changing. ;)

I'm really thinking not. Then you have to get into the confusion of submitting multiple images...

Well ill still try to get one up. Not just a picture either, but ive been meaning to create and actual boot screen + logon screen for a while.

And do the entries have to be made completly in PdN? I know its ok to use stock images, but if we do an OS, Ill probobly use blender for the icons.

I'm still alive!

You may use other programs, but all things created externally count as stock imagery. The more stock you use, the less you make in Paint.NET, the less esteem you will get for your creation. ;)

thanks Helio understand now its just a picture of what I'd like my desktop to look like not an actual working thing? correct?

I don't know if I'm up to doing all that but I'll try to do the start button I wish for and maybe the background instead of the blue 3dbox thingy that's there now.

It doesn't have to be full size of my screen does it?

Does the start menu mean just a button or a full menu (like when you click on it?)

EDIT: can the wallpaper your desktop uses be a stock image?

That's the full menu (yes, when you click on it).

The wallpaper will most likely be stock. Some people might make their own, but personally, I'm using stock. ;)
