Gnome "Theme development is a tedious and difficult task, and for the GTK devs to be so careless in breaking their API at every turn disrespects the many hours people put into making themes for it. [...] I was given to believe that this breakage stems from a Microsoft-like climate of preventing users from customizing their systems, and deliberately breaking the work of others so that your 'brand' is the best. Anytime I hear the word 'brand' being used in Linux, I know something valuable is being poisoned." I find the tone of this one a bit too harsh and overly negative at times, but his point still stands.

RE[12]: Why not use Qt?

That actually looks great. I would nix the taskbar obviously, as I use alt-tabbing and desktops, but other than that, much better than I thought the LXPanel could look.

Also, I was reading up on the KDE release plan, and 4.10 (out in January) has a folder drawer widget, which would seem to be exactly what you wanted.
