I started mucking about with panels/docks again.
This I tried "plank" that sort of has been resurrected bij ElementaryOs lately.
Plank takes some getting used to and has some strange quirks when trying to alter themes but it's doable.
I've put some screenshots together in a gallery, including 2 shots tghat uses "tint2" as a panel for comparisons sake.
Of course the wallpaper defines how a panel should look, so I tried a few using different plank themes.
Plank themes are inevitably still very OsX like docks so I intend to look for more options.
Interested to hear what you guys think.
Question: Do we really need facebook's OpenGrap[h tags here?
