Don't get me wrong.. i don't like to auto hide my applets (so i don't
do it ^_^) but i do like to get rid if things that use space. With the
exception of __one__ panel (i must admit i have 2 panels now) but
other then that i like to keep it as clean as possible. So: 1 icon for
the menu, no quick launch icons (assuming it's popping out from the
lower left corner like i showed in the mockup) and nicely glassy
themed. You could say partly vista under linux.

Something different.. i have no idea what all went wrong in the first
post of this tread but it all looks messed up (like you found out)..
even the title.
