Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

This is my basic desktop. It's KDE 4.4.5, with a custom desktop background, new menu button from kde-look, classic menu, colibri notification, six desktops, a hidden cashew and a number of other subtle changes. I like a clean desktop, and I like to avoid having more than one thing for each task - so I don't bother with desktop plasmoids.
I also have an openbox desktop which I'm working on at the moment - not got it looking pretty enough yet (tint2 panel and conky aren't up to my aesthetic standards yet) so I'll wait until I'm happy with it before posting anything.

Slackware 13.1 with KDE. Details on what I used to make the look is under the description of the linked page.
I used the Ghost in the Shell theme for a while and had the same kmenu icon (which is weird), but I was annoyed by the dark text-boxes for things like youtube comments. That said, I like your Tron background. Also, the Neon icon theme looks extremely good with this set-up. Nice KDE4 theme - definitely some ideas from when I get bored of what I have. Very cool.
My YouTube comments are just the plain black-text-on-white-background as usual. The only places I get dark text boxes are in search engines and in some boxes on sites like Facebook -- basically it's only dark in text entry fields. I did have to do some tweaking to makes things more visible, so at this point nothing is annoying to read.
tbh, I can't really remember where visibility was an issue, and I'm sure it was fixable. I agree, Tron is great desktop material - I had a System Shock 2 wallpaper when I used the Ghost theme; though it was all very green. Can't believe I never thought of using the neon icon theme though, because that looks solid.
