Well, just to prove how sad I am, I like the taskbar looking like it does
I'm using the WaterMark Screenlet for my CPU, RAM and disk monitoring.

It also reads my temperature sensors which is more than some of the others do but I prefer to use the Hardware Sensors Monitor for these.

Good choice MC. Looks like you have added multiple Watermark screenlets on your desktop too.

Yes, I'm gradually working my way around things because a lot of them have changed since I was last with Linux. Despite my liking for Evolution and Thunderbird, by switching to Opera I don't have to worry about jumping through hoops for minimization and notification icons so I'm using Opera as my browser and mail client. It does it's job simply and effectively without the need for plugins which I appreciate are no big deal for most, but I'm a great believer in things which already come "finished" out of the box
So far I've not encountered anything I can't do with it that I could with Firefox but then it's only been a day so time will tell.
