I would go nuts if I could see the desktop the entire time I do something else. I guess it’s different if all you have open is a text editor (when it comes to transparent windows that is), but if you do graphic work the desktop itself is unimportant.
As long as I can find things :p
It’s nifty with transparent windows in Linux though. For the sake of writing and that sorta thing that is :p

Transparency is cool but useless. Every so many years I look at it, and then I realize that I can’t work like that.
And Robin, that yellow background looks terrible!!!

Hey, I like yellow
But you’re right. I don’t use transparent terminals for the same reason; they’re too distracting. I much prefer solid color backgrounds – either green-on-black or black-on-yellow.
However, every Linux screenshot seems to demand them ‘cos they’re cool, so I dropped one in.
