Latest screenshot of my #!Crunchbang Statler / Debian Sid desktop.

I was playing around with Inkscape and came up with this. Then, changed tint2 and Conky to match the colour theme.

Pretty rad. I must ask though, are there any benefits to tint2 weight wise or is it all looks? Been curious to try it but I'm trying to keep as slim as possible.

tint2 panel is a lot lighter and much more minimalist than most any other taskbar out. For me, it's purely for looks and minimalist functionality ... I don't 'need' lightweight.

I normally use Openbox with either Debian Sid and Crunchbang . . . but this particular set-up is Xfce.
