Windowmaker on my old laptop. Fast and simple.
Nothing special, think I went a little overboard with the dockapps though, oh well...
You went a little overboard with the size of your image,as well, Mr.Spoon!
WindowMaker on my OpenBSD laptop.
How did you get that icon beastified? It's very nice.
@Aramaki ojiichan: Cowboy Bebop OST FTW! GITS as well.
He comes with wmdrawer, it's in the ports collection, but if you don't want to install that dock app, here is the beastie image that came with it:
Just extract the image and then copy it to /usr/home/****/GNUstep/Library/Icons/
I used su and cp -ipv since i'm not logged in as root.(but that's just me)
Then right click on the clip to change the image.
PS: sorry about the size of the screenshot, it's been reduced in size.
Here is my little desktop at work:
LOL you guys still use WMBlueCPU and WMBlueMem? I've posted some updates at http://tech.grigoriada.net/portfolio/dockapps.html (i'm the author guy). Also, can you guys test if they still work on BSD? Thanks!
I like that theme, what is it and can you send it? Also like that clock-app, is it a modified wmclock or another one?
I've tried wmbluetime and wmbluemem. Both are ok on my 7.2-RELEASE.
wmbluemem is really neat! Thanks!
BTW, what for is that right row on wmbluemem? It's empty. Is it shows the swap state?
I think I used the default style called 'Interlace'. Yep, lazy me. :r As for the clock, it's a wmCalClock app from the ports, with modified font and colour.
Yes, the left is physical memory and the right is swap. Also try right-clicking on them for some menus (each has its own options).
Thanx, I have only tried changing themes but now I see that you can change alot by changing style as well
Man I love windowmaker.
But it's sad the development has been stopped. I'd be glad to see some new features like an autohide for the dock, better 'taskbar' or smth. Some apps behave really strange with the dock, wmmixer is one of them. It also would be great to have some app to easily set up backgrounds, I mean to be able to list a bunch of images in full-screen mode and choose the desired (tiled, stretched and all those flavors).
And what I'm really happy with is the windowmaker's menu system, it's just perfect - hot-keys, cool auto scroll feature, easily configurable (try xfce to feel the difference... ugh x()
There is active development on wmaker. The homepage has nothing to do with that unfortunately. They are working on it and are going to include old dockapps.org in it.

NICE!! Also wonderful to see the homepage updated and new version out :e
