This is my original custom workbench. it works on a 3.0 (the real original, that i used on my A500, rom 1.3 i've lost). i made this baby in 1993 i think.

It's built around the program XCopy, that i used a lot back then; i've redrawn the pointer to look like the Bullfrog' logo, the disk icon and the font, with the programs that came with workbench 1.3, the icon to look mean, the font to look like the one in The Day of the Tentacle, but this i tend to use just for screenshot not for daily routine. you can see it in the last couple of pics.

the main window has only the Shell icon, the rest is up there in the menu, using mymenu. i squeezed in a 880kb single disk everything i used: diropus, xcopy, bootX, even the database program miamiga disk, an hex editor, a disk salvager, degrader, a text viewer and a text editor and more.
most of the program used the reqtools library and the asl library, so those were there. i compressed most of it all with powerpacker, and tweaked the appearance of the most used program to match my favored color scheme. i tend to like green in my desktops...

Rather old grab... but since I at the moment can't grab a newer one I'll go with this. My aim was to have a nice and clean look... not bothering about having folders instead of drawers as icons, and also not bothering about the iconset not really having anything to do with the Amiga...

Here's what my WB looked like back in 1990 - screenshot taken a few years ago. (...with WinUAE I'm afraid to admit, but I had no choice - you can't capture copper rainbow otherwise. I'd like to point out that WinUAE was on my work computer. I only use Amiga at home.)

You mean my WB1.3 with rainbow and dropshadow? You just need two programs named (..coincidentally) "rainbow" and "dropshadow". I can throw them in the zone if you want.

Dropshadow is not recomended for regular use. It has two problems - the dropshadow gui must remain open and the more windows you open, the slower the system gets. Rainbow has no problems and can be run in startup-sequence (as long as you "run >nil:")

Notice that my WB1.3 screen is 660x436 (usable space). This was a strange side-effect of opening WB1.3 prefs with WB3.1, then saving. Normally you can't use overscan in WB1.3 (should be 640x400 for NTSC). Of course, back in 1990 when I had a WB like this, it was only 640x400. (...and I didn't make those folder icons until 1995 after seeing MacOS 7)

Zone them. Eye candy is always welcome I'm thinking of adding a program that draws bubbles in a cli window to Hombre just for kicks

Here's a recording from WinUAE showing how this little hack(Bubbles) works. You can get it from lsd-legaltools disk 85.

OK, they're in the Zone. I added "rainbow2", but it looks like it's meant for non-interlace - the copper rainbow only goes halfway. Warning: don't attempt to use "Dropshadow" in WB 2.0+. It will crash. The rainbow programs work in all WB versions.

@pTah

I like yours - a nice clean, simple... error message. (Image Error)

@Hobbe

What the hell is the background? Is that a smiling clam, a pineapple with dentures and a happy starfish? For some unknown reason, I like it.

@mombasajoe

Is that a 68060 taking a piss on the boingball? Maybe it should have been a leaky battery pissing on a motherboard.

I never did figure out what "Intel Outside" actually means.

That's a screencap from a music video called "Move Your Feet" by Junior Senior. The song is rubbish I warn you, but the video is an awesome display of pixel art power

Since I've fiddled some with my new A4000 built into a Micronik tower I took a screengrab from it

Parts of it only, mostly some patches and the themes..I'm using the theme changer "Morpheuz" from AmiKit to change themes easily

it was quite easy to do, yes
