How can i have a desktop which is the same with this?

First of all, i am Windows 7-32 bit-ultimate user. As for my issue,
when i was checking out windows 7 on google images, i saw this picture and i loved it. This is what exactly i want to use on my desktop.

Here are the questions.. Which gadgets and docks or etc. are used or installed in this desktop? Especially, i wonder about the top lane of desktop and recycle bin gadget.
Can anyone help me to have this desktop? (By the way, wallpaper is not important)

Thanks..

ok , you could use object dock and configure it to the top of the screen,find here
Stardock Corporation - Software - ObjectDock
,the other icons are just desktop shortcuts that have been enlarged/resized.this can be done by pressing and holding ctrl and scrolling the mouse wheel up or down for bigger/smaller icons
