Two things I always see, and want.

That dock and that player.

I run Object Dock on windows, and I've always seen it used on Linux but never knew what program it was.

And, is that like, an XMMS skin I just don't have? or some special player, because it's far better than any basic winamp/xmms skin.

I'd say KDE, SuperKaramba+theme.

Edit: And I can't believe I never thought to check Some b*st*rd's nicked my name!

That particular one is KDE, but I've seen it on both. They're just applications but I dont know where they're at, or where I can get them.

Yeah it obviously has the look of KDE, the icons are from a theme, and the media player is probably one of these k apps that come with kde and work perfectly with it (like konquerer, konsole...). Just try out all your KDE media players :P and look on the internet for the theme :P

The media player is MPlayer with one of the corner skins. I'm pretty sure you can find them at the MPlayer site.

try looking at the karamba section of for the application panel. I have definitely seen a skin similar to the one in the screenshot at MPlayer's skin section on their website.
