Christmas desktop 2006

It’s December 1st again, and you know what that means – it’s time to break out xsnow and a new Christmas wallpaper for the holidays. I’ve also started listening to my collection of Christmas music to get into the holiday spirit.

Happy Holidays!

  8. I have to launch it from a terminal and keep the terminal window open in order to keep xsnow running.
