Just a concept design of a desktop that I had in my mind. Not a real desktop!

There's a buggy GTK theme that shares some similarities with it. Not much tough. :p - [link]

But let me explain the function of the concept.

1. As you can see in the chat window I've designed a menubar that you click on to summon. (The little m-icon.) I think that can save some space on the windows. It is supposed to fade in when you click the icon. (Pretty animation effects you know. :p )

2. The menu is simple. A keystroke thingie that have 3 options as you can see. But when you click on workspaces (see pink desktop) you can also drag applications to your other workspaces. Clicking once in the menu will open the program in the current workspace, or you can drag the menu item to the desktop you want to open it in. (Isn't that how gnome-shell works?)

Oh well, some minor details in this one can look a bit strange. Like some paddings and the window-icons for example. But it's just a quick concept. :P

Icons: [link] and gnome-colors.

I hear the next Ubuntu will be moving menubar into window border~ Plus that "start" menu might be possible as a variation of cinnamon..? This isn't that far from doable anymore :3

really nice!
what photo viewer is that?
GNOME Shell looks like this kinda!
I was looking for your eCO wallpapers today and restumbled upon this. Aside from some of the new concepts you present in this mockup, some of it could make for a really nice Cinnamon theme.

Not a bad idea. I think it'd be nice if we standardize stuff like the application menu specs so we can display them in a variety of fashions. KDE's Kwin may be getting an AppMenu option for the titlebar, for instance. It would be good to have upstream support of this so people can easily switch how their menu is displayed. Of course, flexibility isn't always the biggest priority. I guess we're getting there- thanks for sharing your concepts.

Whoops- just realized how old this deviation is. It's still fairly relevant, though.
You are clearly a Mac-user :p
Nice wallpapers thanks
13:17 xD Awesome! As most of the comments above say, i would like to see this on my desktop!

Very nice one ;)
