Seeing as making mock-up designs for gnome and kde is quickly becoming a fad, I thought I'd join in the fun and try it myself.
"candi gnome" is a result of:
1 sleep deprivation due to the fact that it's the second-last day before school starts again
2 stolen icons from all over - I suck at illustration (icons still copyright their respective owners)
3 feeling the itch to make something on a whim
I doubt this will ever be used, but hey, it's a good piece of entertainment.
The bottom is pretty much a mac application tray. The idea is that you can drag and drop icons for easy access. The one thing I didn't like about the mac was that minimized windows became mingled with the applications, so there's also a task bar that's pretty much the same as gnome has now.
the tab thing is to show/hide the bar when there's a full screen app running.
I also shrunk the usual three main buttons on the gnome bar into one small icon. I think it looks a lot cleaner this way.
oh, the psd file is attached so you can mess with it if you want.
