I ended up uninstalling the cairo-docker. For some reason it kept a 2 inches of my desktop (from bottom of screen) and would not go away, so I lost a good portion of my desktop real estate. The icons on the docker went away once my mouse left the docker, but that 2 inch rectangle across the bottom of my screen didn't. I tried fiddling with it, couldn't figure it out. It's cool looking, but also distracting when I am trying to do something.

Yes, cheese is pretty until you want to actually accomplish anything.

Well I have recently abandoned Arch, Slack because I got tired of using them. So I switched over to Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. As you can see I don't like anything fancy. Unity is bleh Gnome 3 is bleh. Everything else beyond is bleh. So I'm just using good old gnome classic.

Reminds me somewhat of OSX....... :3

What about MATE desktop? It's a fork of GNOME 2.
