So I was messing with Crunchbang Linux on my Acer Aspire One. I really liked the darker colors and the Conky config. I was also enjoying how simply and quick everything was. What really got me was that I found quite a few new apps that I didn't know existed (for instance Gwibber).
I decided to try and do something similar with a little bit more flare on the desktop side. These screenshots are the result. The first is with terminator up. The sceond is just the desktop.
