Here we are in the standard desktop with a single Firefox window open. How close is this to the original gOS desktop? Pretty close, you have to admit, except for the missing Clock and Exalt, which are replaced by conky in the upper right corner. (Yea, I know it needs a different font, and some confguration cleanup). Also, notice the minimized windows just left of the tray in the lower right corner.
Okay, here we see a single menu to get to most of the functionality. Notice the top part of the menu is the "favorites" while the lower part has things like the full applications menu. This menu is accessible by right-clicking on the desktop, or by hitting the <Win R> key ('R' for root menu).
Okay, here we have two windows side by side. This is the start of a demonstration of a power of pekwm - notice the title bars, then look at the next photo.
Okay, the same two windows as the last photo, but now we're displaying different applications in the windows. pekwm allows doing this to make more efficient use of you screen space. It's like having firefox's tabs in any program you're running! Also note the window pull down menu, available by right-clicking the title bar, or pressing <Win W>.
Here's the "GoTo" window. It shows you all the groups / frames, with the desktop number they are on to the left. If any of these were minimized there would be a dot between the 's. This is available by click the middle mouse button on the desktop, or pressing <Win L>.
Same idea here as the "GoTo" window, but now the "GoTo Client" window shows all of the running applications, and how they are grouped. Available by pressing the <Win C>
And again, a picture of SnackAmp. Notice in pekwm I don't have to have window decorations on the player window. This allows me to use a compact mode, which I normally have set to "sticky" on all desktops. This is automatically set via pekwm's auto properties.
A final couple tweaks: moved the launch bar over, and put snackAmp on all desktops. Final touch: re-themed conky to provide better / accurate information. A simplified version this conky theme could have been used in gOS much more effectively, IMO.
