Dang, that really does look very much like CrunchBang to me (I guess that's why you called it "SlackBang").

Hello kitty is "kawaii" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kawaii

A nice one would have been a picture of Yamato Senkan, digitally remastered so as to have the kanji of Miyamoto Musashi superimposed over its hull...

But then again, this would not be original...

The sister ship of Yamato senkan, was called Musashi senkan, the first was named afte the old name of Japan - Yamato -, the second one was named after the name of the great Samurai, Musashi...

But IMHO, the Warships of the Dai Nippon Kaigun were the most elegant of its era... the Germans followed similar trends in design, but did not take things to the extreme we did... then again Germany's KriegsMarine was a commerce raiding Navy... they built submarines... our navy was a War navy... we seldom ( if ever ... ) attacked civilian/transport ships...


And If i had to use a fighter aircraft of ww2 as screenshot, i would probably use a Hayate, Nakajima ki-84...

By all means the best Japanese Fighter to enter production in WW2... although a bit late to secure Japanese airspace against the B-29s... there were simply not enough of them ...

Although, i must admit... the most elegant and beautiful fighter of WW2 was the Mitsubishi A6m Zero

EDIT : This is an example of Kawaisa... , mixing huge awesome fscking stuff, like Battlecruisers, Aircraft Carriers, etc, with anime/manga characters... strike with the contrast...

Thats actually really cool looking Mark7

I love the RiscOS theme. I used that quite a bit in the days of KDE3.2.

I thought it was RISC OS

I never understood the whole making one OS look like another thing. It just seems so wrong to me.

Well it doesn't look exactly like RISC OS.

I just like the style.

Not me, I see it as a good way to transition into a new environment actually. Plus it is good for being nostalgic and curious about other systems. I never even saw the RiscOS theme until I used it under KDE3.2, as well as the CDE theme and of course the ever familiar Win9x theme.
