Interesting views. I was quite impressed with Metisse for FVWM:


I hope the concept comes to KDE/GNOME rather soon. Windows seems to have lost
their direction and conceded the 3-D 'stuff':


Also see KDE Plasma and GNOME Luminocity if you have time or interest:

It's neat, but not for work in my humble opinion (unless you merely SSH to a
work machine).

Good for:

- WiFi (hardware probing)

- Linux beginners

- Office use

It doesn't seem like a developer's environment. It needs to be enhanced
manually as it comes with just the necessities 'out of the box'.
