    it looks like a group of desklets

    you can use gdesklet if you're using gnome, superkaramba if you're using kde, or adesklets for any of them (gnome, kde, anything else) to get desklets that work similarly to that

    the programs i just named off don't work on their own though, you get add-ons (desklets) for them so that you can use them. the one on that screen looks like it's maybe 4 desklets right near each other (divided by the black horizontal lines).

    !!!

    If you use KDE, install superkaramba... very nice...

    You use GNOME, install gdesklets... very nice...

    However they are very CPU hungry, especially on moderate machine... but if you like them, you can try! Personally I get more information with gkrellm, because these program are mainly eye candy.

    Go to superkaramba site and download the applet for wiew the wheter... incredible!

    I'm almost certain that it's superkaramba (or possibly just karamba). You can get themes for it at www.kde-look.org. As for the transparent terminal, in aterm you can run it with the -tr option to have it transparent. For eterm, it's -O (that's a capital 'o', not a zero). Things like superkaramba are great for showing your windows-using friends how nice linux can look

    Wow, what a nice shot! These rox file manager windows look awesome and yeah, those desklets are most likely superkaramba themes (widgets).

    I just wonder what WM is that. It doesn't look exactly like neither GNOME nor Xfce..

    Thanks

    It's xfwm with rox-desktop, rox-panel, rox-menu, pager, tasklist, system tray, etc. and two rox-filer windows, icons: Noia / Noia Warm.
    The theme is plastik for xfce, and the system stats program is GDesklets.
