The Redmond setup with a little surprise

xrandr output for the terminal masochists among us;
LVDS1 connected 1600x900+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 382mm x 215mm

Figured I would post this for the heck of it. A "Typical" Redmond panel setup using BlueMenta theme with an auto-hide 72px top panel that doesn't get in my way. Therein, system indicators that are 150px wide each, and the workplace switcher.

For those curious, titlebar theme is Ordinary Black Glass for the Emerald window decorator. Loads by default via Compiz.

Also shows my setup for, among other things. Nice, large system indicators take the place of Conky and a large workplace switcher makes handling windows from there, or switching to them rather easy with my mouse.

Was it worth posting? Probably not. But Somebody might like the top panel enough to emulate or improve upon it.
