Reader ravenclawwit is no stranger to our featured desktop series, and submitted this beautiful setup to our Desktop Showcase a few weeks ago. It looks great, from top to bottom, and is pretty heavily personalized. It also has a little secret.

Do you have a good-looking, functional desktop of your own to show off? Share it with us! Post it to your personal Kinja blog using the tag DesktopShowcase or add it to our Lifehacker Desktop Show and Tell Flickr pool. Screenshots must be at least at least 1280×720 and please include information about what you used, links to your wallpaper, skins, and themes, and any other relevant details. If your awesome desktop catches our eye, you might get featured!
