I've explained my set up throughout my blog; you can check categories for rox and look through the pages (both links are on top of every page). I use rox (available via mydsl), which is much more than the "filer" -- filer meaning a drag and drop window like the second shot on that page.

Rox also has a "pinboard," or what's more commonly called "desktop." The icons on my desktop are a rox pinboard. Multiple pinboards can be set up so you can change through them for various things of relevance; for example, I have pinboards set up for general use (the one on that page), for graphics work (with icons for imagemagick scripts so I can drag and drop on icons without having to use command lines), for internet stuff, etc.

And the bar across the very top is the rox panel. You can set up multiple panels the same way you can set up multiple pinboards, so they're relevant to whatever task(s) you want them. The panel can be put on top, along either side, or on bottom.

If you choose to use rox, I recommend you switch window managers. Rox doesn't play very well with the version of fluxbox in DSL, though I've seen screenshots of rox and fluxbox that show they can be compatible. Rox plays well with JWM, so you have a fall-back if you want to use it without adding another window manager to your system.

I use oroborus, and I've edited some of the default themes that came with it so the menu bars are a little shorter (16 versus 20 pixel, iirc). I've also used rox with windowmaker without any trouble.

Wow cool thanks for explaining that. I am using JWM anyway as I like it much more.

That taskbar at the top looks so useful. Ahh the OS9 look in my reach at last! I will report back when I try it out myself.
