Archived Millennium Themes

As you may know, Millennium-This Is Who We Are is the rebranded version of Millennium Desktop UK, a site which came about wholly from distributing a Millennium desktop theme for users of Microsoft Windows 98 (was it really that long ago?!). Prior to the relauch, the name probably confused many fans of the Millennium TV series unless they happenned to know the origins of the site and the fact that it came about as a way of distributing the desktop theme to users of the Millennium newsgroup saving me from having to upload it several times a day upon request. The site grew as a result of my interest in webdesign and the desire to brighten up the download page with a few images. Who would have thought that this would evolve into such a large website and feature-laden forum community!

Presented below purely for posterity are the original Millennium desktop themes for Windows 95/98/98SE/ME. These themes contained desktop background wallpaper images, icons and sound effects from the Millennium tv series. Please note however that these themes are now very old and computer operating system software has moved on a great deal; from the basic wallpaper image and icons of Windows 95 to the translucent effects of Windows XP, to the cool glass effects of Windows Vista's 'Aero' interface. Microsoft decided to lock the desktop theme element of Windows XP and so users had to rely on third party software to make use of desktop themes such as Stardock's range of products including Window Blinds. It was possible for these classic desktop themes to work on Windows XP by switching to the 'Classic' appearance beforehand.
