I think perhaps you misunderstood when I said "sadly 3D windows makes it look pretty awful".

I was not referring to the quality of the small size / resolution uploaded file. I was referring to what enabling the '3D Windows' setting in Compiz settings manager does to the eliptical sphere (is there such a description?) once that is applied.
The 3D windows work ok on a cube, But the effect goes all out of whack when applied to curves other than a drum.
Trying to float windows above a sphere looks awful :-)

if you're talking about the statue of David or similar female statue nudes why would it be? if you're talking about something raunchier what do you think?

You could strategically place Linux Mint logos on them in GIMP before posting :lol:

Or as it's Christmas, some puddings and a tree...

I am running Cinnamon in a VM before I actually do a fresh install on bare metal.
Here is what my wife, Fluffy's desktop will look like per her input i.e. her choice of wall paper and she likes icons on the desktop rather than use the menu for most things.

I will go with the 3 monitor background via Nitrogen
I really like the Numix-Cinnamon-Transparent theme that make the panel inviable.

Your wife has good taste to choose Thomas Kincaid painting as background/wallpaper...DAMIEN

Hard to see the primary screen in the 3 monitor shot that depicts the transparent panel - so here it is

I'm always curious what people do with their desktop :)
Here's mine.. quite minimalistic

for some it's just a hobby.
since it's a mix of technology involved with some architectural perspectives and imagination ... i'll tell you this, learning what i know was hit and miss

This one of my favorite threads - I really enjoy seeing the creativity of other forum members. Trytip - quite artistic and beautiful - beauty is truly in the eyes of the beholder as the saying goes. I find it interesting how these desktops run the spectrum from Sci-fi/tech/ to retro to artistic. I have one of Fabio's (a forum member) wallpaper designs on a laptop that I thought was just stunning I it's creativity.

Mint 19.3 Xfce for End of 2020. Still waiting for Mint 20 to settle and 19.3 is still working nicely.
Still using KDE/Plasma bits to give Xfce the transparency I like on nearly all my Qt apps like Dolphin. Dolphin's side pane is hidden in this shot.
I installed the Metacity 'Rusted Darkness' theme because I liked the Window Decoration but I modified it with Big Buttons (ugly - yes - but I hate searching for invisible buttons).

Dec 2020 Rusted D.jpg
Still using a 55 inch monitor, so I have room for all the transparent Panels (quicker access to frequently used stuff and to my shell scripts that using file managers or the Menu). The bonus, and my MAIN reason for using all the panels is that with the little spaces left at the ends of the Panels I have a number of spots to scroll with my mousewheel on the desktop to switch Workspaces.

I didn't enjoy stuffing around with Conky trying to get a 'clean, simple' clock I was after that would float nicely over the top of open apps, so I replaced my bottom Panel with Cairo-Dock and enabled the Cairo-Clock plugin. It works, and it has the transparency I wanted so it can float over open apps.

Wallpaper is the island where I was living aboard my yacht until she was wrecked by a cyclone.
