Actually that looks awesome, altho I don't know if your description was in English or not I don't know a thing about Linux or Karambas or Slickbars, but damn, it sure looks good. And probably takes a fair bit of talent to get it to look that way...

Karamba (and SuperKaramba) is a desktop widget application, kinda like Konfabulator (or DesktopX, but a lot less easy to make widgets for than DX).

Thanx for the tutorial and the links, I'm always lookin for different stuff to check out, haven't done this kind of stuff before about 6 months ago or so, but it's a lot of fun and challenging to do.
