OfficeOS is a Clearlooks theme (using pixmaps for the new panel when it became apparent that the other one was ugly) modeled after the colours of Murrine Symphonic. The package contains:
+ 1 GTK theme
+ 1 background image
+ 5 network icons (one theme - you need 5 to make the whole set of 25%, 50%, etc.)
+ 1 old panel background
+ 1 modified menu button*
Keep in mind that this does not include the DISCOVERY icon theme or the INVERTED / GLOSSY (either looks great - Inverted demoed in screenshot) metacity themes.
*To "Install" the menu button image, open "gconf-editor", go into "apps", "panel" and then "objects". Find the one that looks like it's got something to do with a "Main menu" and then turn on the "custom icon" key and enter the path to the image in the appropriate field. I'm working on a simple script to assist in this for the next release.
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”.
