Panels in Oneiric Ocelot

I use only one panel, too.

I would put digital clock in format %H:%M; tooltip is for additional
information about date.

I use only one workspace. Power user can switch by keyboard shortcuts.
Adding rows in the Workspace Switcher and/or reducing the number of
workspaces could be considered.

I want to use such a style that shows all user interface elements.
E.g. Clock's frame and Window Button's handle, if they are chosen.

I don't care about sorting of Windows Buttons, but I use Windows
Grouping setting Always; it is handy e.g. if you have several Firefox
windows, and it shows different applications in task bar better, if
there are many applications with many windows open.

I don't use desktop for file management; I usually have windows on it,
and I don't need the Show Desktop button. Well, I don't use Trash bin
either, I delete by sift-delete, since bare delete does not free
space.

BTW. It is odd, that when the mouse is on a random window and I press
Ctrl-Esc, I get a menu that has an item to e.g. create new folder. I
switch Icon type to None in Desktop settings to let the same shortcut
show just the applications menu.
