is it docky?
kobold-wuff Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2011  Student Digital Artist
The bottom panel is just...
So... :heart:

This should totally be in Gnome 3.
nutellajunkie Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2010
hey this is nice :) i dont think it would take much effort from the Ubuntu team to create this either!
clokverkorange Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2010
If this is what the Ubuntu desktop looked like and functioned like, I would switch. MacOS may have the Adobe Suite going for it, but for everything else I would hit Ubuntu.

Awesome work :D
TheRNX Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2009
thats gnome huh?

Very clean and nice, I would like it, but where is the application docking? Or are we relying on good old trusty alt+tab?

Sweet idea ^^

mockup* i meant
sprhom Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2009
That looks really great!

Was browsing through, and just throught that I'd mention, if you haven't checked it out already, try out Cairo-dock. It has a lot of useful and interesting features, including something like the icon-ring-set that you have in your mockup. Between Cairo-dock and Awn, I recommend AWN.

Wow is excellent..

I like it except for the this dock thing. Too OSXy to my taste.

M16mKies Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2008
I LOVE it! Great work. I wish that my ubuntu looks like this
Vadi2 Featured By Owner Jul 4, 2008
Amazing. Did you submit it?
aubreyisland Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2008
Nice Job!

pretty good, the top bar doesn't suit, slimmer bar would be better, and how did you do then dock, have you got the theme I can download?
tired-triclops Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2008
Something like this would be awsome
DanRabbit Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2008  Professional Interface Designer
very very nice.

however, I don't know if you application scroller should be magnified when its not mouse over...

also, instead of straight black for text, try a dark dark gray.

also, i'd make the top panel a little smaller. it takes up too much screen real estate.

overall, very good job.
goodlilmonkey Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2008
I Like it!
xeeew Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2008
i'm not quite sure how you're going to pull that dock thing off, but overall, it looks amazing. 'Specially that wireless connection thing in the corner
yoyoma72 Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2008
Where did you get GIMP for ubuntu? I'm thinking of getting it and would like GIMP.
Silver-Readman Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2008
GIMP should come w/ Ubuntu~
yoyoma72 Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2008
Yeah, after getting Ubuntu I realized that.
Silver-Readman Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2008
That's what you get when you reply to a month old post...

very nice idea!
macboi Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2008
I love this mock up. one suggestion though. instead of the dock going backwards-around (hard to explain), make it into a semi-circle and like off the screen. if you get what I mean.
djpeck Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2008
i love it !!!! ubuntu will be much gorgous with a theme like this by default ;)

good work! :clap:
theskywaspink Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2008
I like it, where can I get the wallpaper from?
programmer45 Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2008
OMG how did you do that with your Dock (was it AWN?)
DreadKnight666 Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
I think the current default wallpaper in Gutsy totally sucks! :(
ozoneman Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2007
I like it! We are almost there. There are several new docks for gnome in the works. I run one called "Avant" in my Ubuntu 7.04 laptop now.
HanbunNoTsuki Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2007
Its quite nice and looks useful - although, as some people before me have said, similarities with Apple's Mac OS X are undeniable; and in my opinion, thats because OS X has a very useful UI design. But, yes, there is a but, I believe that this kind of suggestions should be addressed to the GNOME team, not to Ubuntu.

Great work nonetheless.
sishgupta Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2007  Hobbyist Photographer
The dock in the middle is patent infringement imho or regardless too similar to OSX's dock.

I think it would have been nice if you had done something cool with the top bar too since what you are showing is easily doable the way the UI is already. I like the lower glass idea, it would be consistent if it happened on the top bar.

You are going to see your realtime workspace previews real soon in ubuntu as i think that is one of the goals of gutsy (or it was a feisty goal that was deferred at least), also I think shuttleworth has asked for it.

Good work. If you produced this desktop, I would likely use it (esp the osx dock clone, oh noes!).
MrSammy Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2008
Linux and its various distributions and programs have infringed so many patents that no one cares anymore. Without some little patent infringements we would not have the OSs we have come to know and love.
Kmanx Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2007
I don't c why they are "too similar", cept for tha fact that they are both docks they are totally diferent
K0mbatant Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2007
If the dock is patent infringement, then all Windows-based dock applications should be sued. I really don't think they will ever be, so I think the author is clear from any dangers :)

Excellent work mate, simply gorgeous mockup :)

Nah, you're good on the dock. Stardock has ObjectDock for Windows that can look EXACTLY like Mac OSX and they've never gotten in trouble.
Tomrade Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2008
Yeah You can gte that dock for Gnome its called AWN its in some of my Desktop screenshots
upeter Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2007
that's pretty good.
kostas0683 Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2007
very nice, i like some of the ideas on it, good shit man
steo83 Featured By Owner May 19, 2007
Awesome...would be very nice to have such a desktop in the next versions of Gnome!!:D
