What theme/colors are you using? I've been trying to configure Gnome how I want it (which is a lot like how you have it) but I'm used to KDE and can't figure out how to get things like window transparency.
Also, is it easy to switch to XFCE if you installed the gnome edition?
Lastly, what do most people use to configure their DE's? Gnome-color-chooser, compiz, downloaded themes, and downloaded icons? Am I missing anything
Finally, here's mine. Pretty lame, I just installed yesterday - it's a work in progress. Does anybody know how to make my terminal look cooler? Transparency/better colors? Also, how do I make the tabs less blocky? Sorry about all the questions
