I use that set for most of my recent screenshots. LIke the choice of colors in that one. Great shot by the way feed3. :)

I see you edited to add the menu on the left. Nice.

My latest theme, it's sexy. I might get some icons and conky config up soon. Anyone know any good conky alternatives or matching icons?

That worked out well feed3 - the icons co-ordinate nicely with the rest of the desktop.
I hadn't seen magicons before.
I went and got them from http://www.gnome-look.org they look like a useful addition to the toolkit.
Thanks for the heads up :P

Thank you oscar799, I do agree some nice wallpapers in this release of Mint. I figured I would use one of the pre-installed wallpapers for my first screenshot. I have to say the Mint team has done well with this release, no show stopper bugs for me thus far. Still need to further test only had it installed since last night but so far so good. :D

mmesantos1,
So far I've only run Mint 9 RC from the Live CD but as my wireless worked out of the box and I haven't spotted any major issues it will be installed alongside Mint 8 very soon.
I was thinking along the same lines - pick one of the default wallpapers and see what I can do :P
