Greetings everyone!

This month's project is to skin an existing operating system, or to create your own.

As an example, here is a screenshot of Microsoft Windows XP service pack 2: (Link)

Since Operating Systems are a very broad field (and especially since you may create your own), this competition will be slightly different. A scoring system is going to be used in addition to voting.

The list below shows what points you will get for creating OS objects. You will NOT get points for them if they were not created by you (stock imagery).

  • [*:68ed7]A taskbar (or its equivalent) = +2pts
    -
    [*:68ed7]Each window that you make = +2pts
    -
    [*:68ed7]One icon - +1pt
    [*:68ed7]Two icons - +3pts
    [*:68ed7]Five or more icons = +7pts
    -
    [*:68ed7]A Start menu (or its equivalent) = +3pts
    -
    [*:68ed7]Custom wallpaper = +2pts
    -
    [*:68ed7]At voting time, each vote you get will be worth +1pt

You have until 12:00am Friday, the 26th to submit your entry!

Rules specific to this comp.

  • [*:68ed7]You do not have to create the icons. If you use existing icons, list them as stock images. Note that you will not get the points listed above.
    [*:68ed7]You will only get extra points for multiple windows or icons if they are not duplicates.

General rules

There are very few, but here they are:


  • [*:68ed7]Do not just color/recolor. That requires no skill whatsoever.
    [*:68ed7]You must have a link to all source images used in your submission. If you fail to by the end of submission time, your creation will be disqualified.
    [*:68ed7]Once you have submitted your entry, you may no longer add anything/edit your post, excepting links to source images.
    [*:68ed7]This post is for submissions only. If you would like to talk about the competition or a submission, do it
here
[*:68ed7]Be courteous and kind
[*:68ed7]Have fun!

That's it! Good luck, and may the best PDN-er win! :D

v An excellent open–source strategy game—highly recommended.

Well I had 'some' free time today...

Entry:

NOTE: The 'Audio' folder is considered a sub-folder of 'My Files,' so it isn't on the task bar on the bottom. *cough* I forgot it *cough*

Everything in it is 100% PDN with 2 exceptions:

-PDN Logo uses a photo I took

-PDN Website is a screenshot of the actual website

Two windows (one active, with a halo on the text, and one inactive, without a halo), 9 icons (Folder, My pictures, My music, iTunes, Iron Browse [i'm proud of the bevel on that one], Paint.NET, JPG, BMP, PNG, I had two music files but I lost them :oops: ), Start bar, Start menu, "More Programs":

Had to save as a JPG because of stupid Photobucket's file size/dimension limits.

That's the media player I made. Helio accepted it - check the discussion thread if you think I'm a filthy cheater. That's not true though, I'm only filthy.

Now I can go rest in peace, bye bye :)

EDIT:EDIT: In case you didn't know, the pictures inside the folder icon are the only things not made by me.

If my calculations are correct:

+1 point for icons (Only 1 of the icons is 100% PDN)

+2 for taskbar

+4 for windows (I made 2)

+2 for custom wallpaper (I made the space pic myself)

+x because I recieved x votes (x standing for the unknown)

So I'm at least going to get 9 points :D if my calculations are true.

Ok people, for my first MSC, I present to you Graphica X, the latest and most advanced in Software 2.0 programs. This OS designed to be technologically superior, yet simpler than today's vast array of operating systems. So there ya have it. It's picture time 8)

Want the big (1024x768) picture? Just clicky here :P !

th_TheFinalProduct.png

So here it is...For your viewing pleasure, it has been reduced to 800x600 for 1024x768 (recommended for better viewing), see above ^^. :D

Graphica Explorer: simple and great way to find folders. Address bar doubles as search tool

In Conclusion:
