Who Said You Can't Customise Unity?

Hi Guys,

I've been using Ubuntu for around 2 years now but I have mostly used Pinguy OS, an Ubuntu derivative. My girlfriend has been using Unity on her Laptop since the Natty release so I have used it a little when I have been on her laptop. This time around I decided to give Ubuntu a whirl on it's own.

Like most people who use Linux, I like to customise my desktop to make it my own. There have been a lot of people saying that Unity is very difficult to customise unlike Gnome 2 but after some playing around I think I have made my desktop my own. I love the colour blue as you can see from my desktop :)

For those that don't know I've added a screen shot of what the original Ubuntu 11.10 desktop looks like.

As you can see, my desktop is personalised quite a lot and pretty unique I think. I personally love it. For those who want to know I am using the AwOken icon theme, Blubird GTK theme and I have my panels completely transparent & reduced the panel icon size by using the CCSM Unity tools...very simple but very effective.
