Hi József,

I would like to share my view on what you write, if I may.
It is all a matter of taste, really.

1. I personally like the top panel for a few reasons - eg. I found that
looking more often at the top of the screen is good for my neck :-) Tabs
and task bar being close may be more intuitive - you just move up to change
either a tab or a task.

2. Giving a name to whisker takes more space in the panel - not necessarily
a good thing. I don't really need the "menu" label to know where to find
the menu ;-)

3. As for the wallpaper - it's like asking which colour looks nicest...

Fortunately Linux gives the user a number of possibilities to tweak their
system and as long as it is a matter of a few clicks, I don't really see a
problem there.

Best regards,
