Although I don't use KDE4, KDE4 wins in general appearance with the exception of e17 of course.

It's not that competing desktops can't look as good or better. KDE4 just seems to make the process of creating great looking desktops easier and faster.

KDE4 just looks nice. The development team deserves the kudos!

No system monitoring applet, all I'm using is a conky. Yeah it is geeky, but not as geeky as the one I had posted in the ubuntu forums It was openbox with 3 different conkies , one left,one right and one below, and in the middle a transparent embedded urxvt.

That's very stylish! What is the feature or whatever that gives the neato 3-D taskbar at the bottom?

Unfortunately for me, using Xinerama disallows me to use some of the cool stuff, such as KDE Plasma effects. I gotta look into more ways of multi-monitor usage. I don't want compiz-fusion, but I would like a little more style!

It looks like Avant-Window-Navigator to me. Since your not using plasma, that's what I would recommend. It's what I run on my xfce user account.

Hey Martinezio what wallpaper are you using? I've been looking for something like that for my XFCE theme.

Just KDE4... Seems pretty stable to me, much more than GNOME + Compiz, I like it more than GNOME. I used blackbox for a while and liked it...
