This is my current desktop. It's a combination of Mosfet's wonderful Liquid 0.9.2, everaldo's excellent Crystal icon theme, and a custom color scheme.
The applets on the main Kicker panel are KWeather and KNewsTicker, both included with KDE 3.0. The top child panel has a standard taskbar (to simulate the KDE 1.x-style taskbar) and a desktop pager.
The running applications are Konqueror at www.FaithTree.com (shameless plug) and KWorldWatch. Finally, the wallpaper is from Digital Blasphemy and is entitled Morning Light.
