August desktop – enabling obsessive icon sorting since January ’09

August desktop demo

For this month’s wallpaper I listened to the people, namely Mem, who asked for the little sections back so they can compulsively sort their icons. I admit I hadn’t been doing it because I completely forgot – one month I totally left out the calendar too! If you can forgive me for being forgetful, I can give you a desktop with 100% more little sections for your desktop icons than last month’s.

To download one of these wallpapers, click the link to go to the flickr page where you’ll have to go to “All sizes” to download it and pop in to your background.
