Very professional, yet with that one square cm of whimsey! I really liked the old gnome DE, in spite of the shortcomings of the gnome devs. So it's great to see MATE come so far, and the fact that it runs so well on our favorite platform is all the more encouraging.

Thanks, for letting me know. I do know that, but the one in kde can work differently. In plasma desktop, launchers can be put in the panel, or in the task manager in the panel. By having them in the task manager rather than the panel, it means i won't have two of the same icon sitting in the panel when a program is open.
I hope that makes sense. Either way, i've begun using an ordinary task manager, so it doesn't matter too much to me any more.
I really like Whisker. I was never happy with any of the menus in kde. I also really like the weather applet. It's much better than kde's default one. I miss the usb alert thing from kde though.

^ Oh yes, it's all coming back to me now, I do remember that about KDE. I haven't tried Whisker yet, I'll have to check that out. And agreed about the Xfce weather applet, I like it a lot.

Yes, i was going for that look. I really loved the style/theme of opensolaris, not so much the OS, but their desktop looked great. MATE actually runs very well on slackware, i haven't encountered any issues yet.

Hello there, I'm a huge Slackware fan too. I'm using it since 2007. Slackware 12.2 is my all time favourite but I had to settle for a more recent version due to hardware compatibilities and multimedia stuff. Anyway, here's my current desktop:

Keep it simple.
Long live Slackware.

Greetings
I, too have been playing with Xfce w/ Kwin (and also choose to use 32bit Slack w/ quad core 8GB) and have apparently been influenced by minimalism, at least in terms of my Desktop. I still love Conky but that's all that shows.

The "photo" is actually computer generated afaik. It is taken from the 3D Accelerated Graphics Testing Suite called "Valley" by Unigine whose address you can see at the extreme lower left corner.

That's a neat desktop.

It looks like out-of-focus grass (or at least a computer generated effect of it) due to it being too close to the (virtual) photographic lens. The lens itself seem to be a wide-angle focused at its hyperfocal distance, according to this definition:

Quote:
The hyperfocal distance is the closest distance at which a lens can be focused while keeping objects at infinity acceptably sharp. When the lens is focused at this distance, all objects at distances from half of the hyperfocal distance out to infinity will be acceptably sharp.
This way, the maximum depth of field of the lens can be reached, provided that the diaphragm is set at its minimum aperture. However, because the mentioned grass is closer to the lens than half of its hyperfocal distance, is is still outside of that range where acceptable sharpness can be achieved.

Thank you ...and I suspect you're right on the money with the full realism effect they tried to create. In fact it is one of the reasons I decided to use it. I knew I could employ that effect to customize. There was a lot of writing on the grass and in the sky that I used Gimp to sample colors, cover over, and blend in and then blur to match. I kept the web address intact to give Unigine credit where it is deserved and they deserve plenty. Their suite is a superb 3D testing tool with lots of options and info.

Can't say this is the greatest screenshot ever, but I'm still getting things setup. Might move some things around and change some transparencies...

OpenBox with semi-custom variant on a theme named "Deep".
Tint2 with the default crunchbang config with the transparencies slightly adjusted.
Running compton as the composite manager (again, with the default conf from crunchbang.)
