Strong Bad Desktop Theme

The Strong Bad Desktop Theme is a desktop theme for Windows 98. The original version is no longer linked from the site, however, an updated version is downloadable through April Fools' 2014 which adds an alternate Windows Start sound.

Contents

Sounds

These are the sounds spoken by Strong Bad whenever a specific action happens:

  • Min — Awwww...
  • Max — Ohh!
  • Error — Holy crap!
  • Windows Start (original) — Hello, stupid, and welcome to your crappy computer!
  • Windows Start (updated) — Ongggg, doodle-ing! Ding ding ding ding! Welcome to Windows 98. WHY ARE YOU STILL USING WINDOWS 98??! WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU??!! STOP BUYING COMPUTERS FROM THRIFT STORES, MAN!!
  • Windows Exit{singing} Good bye, stupid! We've had a lot of fun on your crappy computer! Please don't ever come back!

Description

The desktop background has a SB symbol with a boxing glove in the middle on it which is repeated in a pattern. The icons are Strong Bad's head (which represents My Computer), Strong Bad's boxing glove (Network Neighborhood), Strong Bad standing in front of a stack of papers (My Documents), and a toilet paper roll (Recycle Bin). When the bin is empty, the roll is, oddly, a full roll; when the bin has files in it, the roll is nearly used up. The waiting cursor is a bomb with an animated fuse.

Fun Facts

Trivia

  • The new Windows Start sound is not linked to the actual sound in the desktop theme and has to be set manually.

Remarks

  • The updated Windows Start theme is actually labeled a "shut down" theme.

Real World References

  • The song Strong Bad sings for the start up sound in the update is the famous Microsoft Sound by Brian Eno, used as the start up sound for Windows 95.
