I'm not a fan of the double-panel GNOME-like setup either. It seems like a
waste of screen real estate, especially now that widescreen displays are
becoming very common. I also use a full-width single bottom panel, à
laWindows. A lot of people seem to do this, or use a single top panel,
in a
pseudo-OS X manner.

As for people complaining about copying the Windows UI, have you seen most
of the screenshots on Xfce-Look and GNOME-Look? Just about everyone is
attempting to copy the Vista and OS X desktops.
