Gaia 2009 by imrik Gaia 2009 by imrik
This is an exclusive mockup for Gaia 09 - A project to raise awareness for climate change:

Climate change and the conservation of our planet is one of the most important issues facing us today. A group of designers and themers have tried to find a way of contributing their own part. How though could a website about desktop customization help to combat global warming?

A mentionable majoritiy of co2 emission is produced by industry. Private households also add significantly to the problem by using multiple fridges, televisions, cars and - last but not least - personal computers. So what can we do to support the movement? With this project, we want to raise awareness for the issue and remind users of nature and its beauty. To remind you of shutting down your computer at night if it's not in use. To turn your gadgets off instead of having them on standby.

With this voluminous release of skins for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux we want to bring attention to the topic in the community and hope to make you think more about the issue and your own ecological footprint.

We hope this project will reach a lot of people. If you want to help us by writing an article, blog entry or an interview feel free to contact us!

We are currently looking for artists, musicians and writers to join our team! So come over and join this project for a great cause!

That's sweet. Minimalistic and Web 2.0-influenced. Not a big fan of the icons, but the theme looks great nevertheless. You deserve the prize hands down!

What is that? A theme or an OS?

Sorry for the late reply. Gaia09 is a community release of skins. So it´s not it´s own OS. Gaia has Skins for Windows, Linux and Mac.

I Think It's a Great Project:
Especially because you are using Dark color's. Monitors use less power to show dark colors than lighter colors!!, so if we are going to use Gaia 09 theme/skin we are reducing our co2 emission
