Used interior deco of local chain restaurant, as a idea, melded an exterior 1947 Chrysler Town and Country as a panel, toolbar, etc.
The menu was a complete direction change half way through with too much back and forth between gimp, gtkrc, and lxappearance to set the right look.
The manila folder tabs have been an idea for a long time, that fell right in place.
Anyway , it gives me a oriental feeling now.
Also, special thanks to samriggs for the ruler fix for gimp, libreoffice, etc.

GNOME is an international effort to build a complete desktop environment—the graphical user interface which sits on top of a computer operating system—entirely from free software. This goal includes creating software development frameworks, selecting application software for the desktop, and working on the programs which manage application launching, file handling, and window and task management.
GNOME is part of the GNU Project and can be used with various Unix-like operating systems, most notably Linux, and as part of Java Desktop System in Solaris.
The name originally stood for GNU Network Object Model Environment, though this acronym is deprecated. The GNOME project puts heavy emphasis on simplicity, usability, and making things “just work”.
