I've talked (probably a lot, maybe too much) about mine before, but here goes:
I'm using XFCE with Compiz-Reloaded as my WM and Compositor. I do not have "wallpapers" in any standard sense, instead, I have set Compiz with a 3D model in the "cube" and set the desktops to transparent, so everything on screen is overlaid on the 3D model.
I have six desktops in a six sided cube because that matches the theme of the model. I'm not using any conky's or Cairo Docks or Planks or any of that at this time, but I have two panels... the bottom panel is a fairly standard XFCE "clone of Windows XP" sort of thing... menu, task bottons, system tray and clock. The top panel has weather on the left (with real time basic stats, temp, wind direction and speed, humidity) then on the right net work up and dow speed, cpu speed (averaged across all eight cores) mem usage, uptime,cpu temp, mb temp and wifi signal strength (although I may remove that one since I'm connected on ethernet now)
My icons (which are never shown on the desktop, only in thunar) are "Alienware-Invader"
My window borders I custom made to go with the theme, using Photoshop and Emerald.
Here's a link to a video of what the whole mess looks like... the opening credits are kind of long, so if you want to skip ahead to about 36 seconds (also the video doesn't show the icon set I am using now...)
