    Dexter, you're thinking of little things like calenders and different icons and such, right? 'Cause there are a lot of little programs that will do stuff, but most of them aren't worth it. If you really want something cool, try the active desktop tutorial and design something yourself.

    Otherwise, like Octopus mentioned, there are shells like Litestep and Geoshell, which will really change things, including the start menu, but those are a bit trickier.
