    This is the kind of thing Apple should have used for Leopard's space theme. Looks much better on the desktop than their default wallpaper.

    And this clock is active, not a static image. That would be a nice visual twist, instead of reflective dock and transparent menu bar.

    Nice, but rather for the amateur astrologer. It doesn't tell you which constellation the planets are in :cool:

    I would've hated that being Apple's default desktop.

    Yeah that wouldn't have been too controversial :rolleyes: Why not put the islamic moon or a picture of Isis up there?

    Seriously though the colors are nice regardless of the content.

    That's quite interesting.

    I don't like the external HD icons though. Their different vanishing points are very jarring. Whoever did those needs to read up on Apple's Human Interface Guidelines document.

    I love Vladtudios wallpapers and wallclocks. Very cool designs.

    Yes ...... YES! Its amateur however. For answers and causes to present events, one needs real-time information on all the planets, their alignment, which constellation they're in, phases, etc. Its quite a precise science







    :rolleyes:

    I would have switched to a custom desktop right away if this was the case.

    Ditto, it's much too busy for my liking. Mind you, I switched to a custom wallpaper pretty darn quick anyway, I always do. It just doesn't feel like 'my' computer unless I have a custom wallpaper. :)

    Never mind the content, Im curious how you get an "active clock" on your desktop? Or an active anything for that matter?

    Is it a screensaver set as the wallpaper? That's doable with a terminal command - I don't know it off the top of my head though.

    You don't. OP is just talking out of his bottom. :cool:

    But I'm sure apple could write something like that if they wanted to (actually, 3rd party screensaver-to-desktop software can do that now).

    But SJ would never be so stupid to tarnish apple's public image with this kind of non-sense (no offense OP).

    It's a little busy for my liking but still is nice.
    I just prefer my custom wallpapers personally.

    dam0dred beat me to it, with a link. I initially picked up the Christmas themed clocks, but this one is really cool. The astrology sign is a nice touch, although I don't believe in any of that. I really like the moon phases.
    Attention to details...

    I got lifetime registration at vlad's site and was not there for over a year - he really makes it worthwhile, lots of new content. The nice thing about owning a Mac is that wallpaper clock app is free, while or Windows you need to buy one (it' shareware). :)
