NOTE: MP3 sound required. Visit Support for details.

This theme is a tribute to the ship and the music from Gordon Lightfoot's "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" from the album "Summertime Dream". There are settings for 800x600 and 1024x768 display sizes with theme files to easily apply the size of your choice. Three box type desktop icons, a few great looking animated cursors, six sound associations, and a set of system logo screens are included.

Sound quality is low and there aren't enough sound files to associate with the average number of sound events. The 'Start Windows' and 'Exit Windows' sound associations are very long so don't expect to reboot your system quickly. Several cursors look rough around the edges and could easily be tweaked for better appearance. There are no 'My Documents' icon or screen saver settings included. There's also a shortcut to the wallpaper that doesn't need to be included. The shortcut is not a problem but it does take away from a "perfect" desktop theme appearance.

"With a load of iron ore twenty six thousands tons more than the Edmund Fitzgerald weighed empty, that good ship and crew was a bone to be chewed when the gals of November came early." The song is great but this theme pushes the limit with poor quality and lengthy associations. If anyone really wants to hear the entire song, they'll download the MP3.
