I've enjoyed looking at some of these desktops. I'm thinking of moving over to Linux because I don't want to go to Win8. I arrange my Win7 desktop with the taskbar down the left hand of the screen. On these widescreen laptops vertical space is at a premium and I want the maximum depth when word processing - a reason why I moved to LibreOffice from Office2007 with its space-hogging ribbons.

I would like to know whether Mint or another Linux-beginners distro can be configured with its taskbar equivalent down the side, or is the narrower horizontal taskbar just not a problem with Linux?

I've never found the Linux bottom panel to be intrusive space wise, although you might like to look first at Ubuntu with Unity which comes how you describe out of the box (although you will still have one horizontal panel)

Alternatively, you can always install the Unity desktop into Mint.
