Nice work! I vote for screenshot 5 and 6.2, I think the 5.2 is also nice,
but it needs a better icon representation, since the desktop icon can also
represents the user's desktop folder or the "show desktop" applet which
makes it redundant.

Also, the ccsm needs more focus, since currently it's really too
"technical", I mean there's a category for "general", "desktop", "extras",
"window management", and more and so, that I think can be consolidated into
a more unified and easy to understand way. For ccsm, HIG is a must.
