Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Just like Eugenia yesterday, I also upgraded my laptop's Ubuntu Feisty installation to Gutsy a few days ago. The upgrade process went completely awry, though, so I was forced to do a fresh install. Not a bad thing, as it gave me the opportunity to take a look at Ubuntu's soon-to-be-released Gutsy Gibbon with GNOME 2.20

It's a shame the transparency in the GNOME panels isn't 'real' transparency, it's merely a faded imprint of whats behind the panel set as it's background.
If you are using a compositing manager (like Thom is in the review) the gnome-panel transparency is "real" in that it is hardware accelerated.

Gnome 2.20's foundation is gtk 2.12. This version has some serious improvements for composite awareness and using it to it's fullest capacity.
