This is my laptop desktop, with GeekTool additions. The laptop is no longer used much and has been retired to home theatre duties.
I tried to restrict the colour palette in the fonts to reflect those in the image. I also didn't want the info to be too "in my face" since it is my HTPC, so the only bright colour is today's date in the calendar and the surfboard.
I also tried to incorporate the weather icon to look like it belonged in the original image.
I hope you like it.
