    Is there a way to hide the top application window that shows the time? I think it would look pritty cool.

    You want to get rid of the menu bar...??? :eek:

    Sacrilege...!!!

    :p

    But seriously, I don't think so. You would have to do some serious modding...

    From Apple Human Interface Guidelines > Menus > The Menu Bar and Its Menus

    So unless you can make OS X to be in a constant slideshow mode I don't think this can be done...

    You mean the entire menu bar? or just the stuff to the right of it? You can hide all the stuff on the right, by setting it in preferences.
    Clock: date & time preference pane (Clock tab)
    Volume: Sound Preference pane
    Battery (laptops only): Energy Saver (options tab)
    Sync: .Mac preference pane
    AirPort (if applicable): Network preference pane, AirPort tab. OR Internet Connect
    iChat: iChat :p
    Any other apps there generally have preference for whether it shows or not.
    MenuTunes does not. Quicksilver does, as does Salling Clicker.

    even easier way to get rid of the icons on the right:

    command click and drag them off, POOF they go

    Gah, I hate that poof!

    "Where have all my Dock icons gone?" :eek:
    "I like watching them go poof!"

    Grr :mad:

    So I snuck onto his Windows box, made a (hidden) folder called "Poof!" and put all his desktop icons in it :p
