cinnamon in f16

A short screenshot tour of my Cinnamon desktop in Fedora 16.

I'd like to be able to do the following things: have the panel not be full-length across the screen; show icons-only for running applications; show running apps from all workspaces; and have two rows for the workspace pager instead of just one.

My Favorites are in a column along the left side. The menu's fairly easy to navigate, and the search feature works great for finding an app by name.

The Expo overview with three workspaces enabled:

The Cinnamon settings window:

The Hot Corner settings window:

Desktop effects:

Panel settings:

The full screen with the desktop right-click menu opened, showing entries I added with Nautilus-Actions:
