my KDE4 desktop

Blue plasma theme with Analog clock, twitter and Picture plasmoids.

The KDE Plasma team is inviting everyone to participate in a contest to create Plasma themes from which a select few will be chosen to be included as a part of the upcoming KDE 4.1 release. This is a great opportunity to contribute to a very visible component of the KDE project, the Plasma desktop.
This is a good opportunity of exposure for the talented graphic desighners here in Maldives as well.
