Wallpaper? Edit... My working partition (Win7X64) :D (That's one of remixed cat minions in there)

We must be the only two people in the world who still have SonicStage installed (and use it, in my case).

I left a good chunk of music back in my country (FLAC)... used to have a Hi-MD, then used to have a lot of songs in Atrac3+... then switched to aac, but forgot to convert some good albums from flac...

And I'm so not going to transcode them..... it's not that bad though.

Why is it that some tiles can be resized but others can't? Argh!

I think almost all of Metro ones can be resized. Others, not so much

I used to have my whole CD collection in ATRAC3+ too. I always liked SonicStage, the tag editor was pretty good but slow. I only use it to put new music on my old Walkman now (which still has stellar audio quality).

It's a shame ATRAC3 died. It was really good at compression, and compression artifacts were much less annoying and audible than they are in MP3 or AAC.

Atrac3 indeed was a good codec, too bad they didn't went the same route as mp3, it could have literally, replaced mp3 back then... I still got my Hi-MD back in my country, but had to move to a 16 gb Walkman, audio quality is great too.

I used to use sonicstage with my sony circ 1GB player. that player still works after being put thru the wash!!! left it in my pocket and it got cleaned allright.... it still worked but all the tracks were deleted.I just put the tracks back on and it worked like it was still new LOL. wish more stuff was made that way!

sonicstage was ok but it was kinda wonky having an extra layer to go thru to transfer songs. I did love how good the compression was... just like I loooove how good .rmvb compression was for videos.... It enabled me to still download anime subs over dialup at a partially acceptable rate. whole eps under 40MB? hell yeah! now the average sub ep is like 400-500MB in HD though.... but at teh time .rmvb saved my ass. LOL.

Keeping it simple....my W8 start menu is pretty standard, so only a shot of the desktop:

The two first icons are actually menus; one for applications and one for games.

Care to share some more details on what software was used for your setup? Like for the menus in the taskbar and the modded explorer.

I appreciate my post is off-topic too, but I do wish that people who post their screenshots followed the guidelines set out in the first post then perhaps it would cut down the number of posts that are just asking for that information. Little bit annoying to find that there's been a new post on the thread and it just turns out to be just someone asking for the theme info and not posting a screenshot!

Did they change up how the Windows Experience Index works? In Windows 7 it's a scale of 1-7.9. Interesting.

      Canalys: Global PC market saw 25% YoY growth in 4Q20
      by Paul Hill



      The analyst firm Canalys has reported that the global PC market saw 25% year-over-year growth in the fourth quarter of 2020. The firm classifies the PC market as desktops, notebooks (including Chromebooks) and workstations but excludes tablets which are sometimes used by some in place of a full-blown PC. Total PC shipments in 2020 grew by 11% reaching 297 million units.

      The full-year growth in the PC market is the highest that’s been seen since 2020 and the number of units shipped is the highest seen since 2014. The growth in 2020 was driven by laptops and mobile workstations; they saw a growth rate of 44% compared to 2019. Desktops, on the other hand, were less successful with shipments falling 20% compared to 2019; there were 61.9 million shipments in this segment of the market in 2020.

      In the fourth quarter, the biggest PC vendor was Lenovo which shipped 23.1 million units, in second place was HP which shipped 19.1 million units. Dell came in third place shipping more than 15 million units for the first time ever, Apple was in fourth place shipping 7.1 million units and Acer came fifth with 6.1 million units shipped. Other companies shipped a combined 18.9 million units in the fourth quarter.

      According to Canalys Research Director Rushabh Doshi, PCs have been at the centre of the digital transformation that the world has gone through in the past year due to the coronavirus pandemic. Doshi said that going forward it’s going to be “extremely difficult” to write off PCs and that it’s likely that they’re here to stay.
