elementary Desktop by TheVirtualDragon elementary Desktop by TheVirtualDragon
So, this is my latest desktop, featuring a little project of mine, flingpanel! Flingpanel is a modification of elementary's wingpanel, but has the close and maximize buttons embedded into it. This means that it is easier to close and maximize windows, since you can simply 'fling' your mouse to the corner. (It is inspired from here: bassultra.deviantart.com/art/W… and some of my own mockups)

The window decorations are a modified Numix (e.g. everything has been stripped down).
The wallpaper is from here: brian-hermelijn.deviantart.com… while the conky is a modification of zagortenay333.deviantart.com/a…

Wow! Love it, especially Flingpanel! Would it be possible to integrate a Global Menu as well?

Excuse my ignorance, mate, but why aren't you using Hot Corners?

I have mine set up as follows:
TOP LEFT: open Applications menu
BOTTOM LEFT: minimize app
TOP RIGHT: maximize app
BOTTOM RIGHT: spread all windows.

I find it to be extremely elegant. :)

I think that would be fine if I was the only person using my computer, but when my family use it, they accidentally activate hot corners, or don't even know that they are there. With this approach, you can accidentally close or maximize (because you have to click as well) and it is easy to see what you do (so more user intuitive).
