My first screenshot of the month. I have done a complete wipe and reformat of all my main hard drive's (note: my OS drive) partitions. And I have finally replaced Windows XP with Windows 7. In addition, I ditched Ubuntu 11.04 and have installed 11.10 in its place. I'm far from finished with Ubuntu, as I still have some apps and KDE Plasma and its mods to install. So here is my first screenshot of my Ubuntu 11.10 running GNOME Shell.

As you can see, I have at least most of my old Mac OS X look back. I had to look through plenty pf GNOME Shell themes to find the right one that comes close to matching Ubuntu's Radiance theme. I really wish someone would make a Radiance GNOME Shell theme like they have with Ambiance. And I have found a way to get the GNOME Shell Activities menu to show from the AWN Dock using a simple launcher applet. It involved installing xautomation so that I can use key commands in the terminal, which is how simple launchers in GNOME 2, AWN, other docks, Cinnamon, etc work. Then in the launcher properties, I placed this in the Command line:
And viola... Activities menu activated from an AWN launcher The downside to this, though, is that I highly doubt I can use it in Cinnamon (which I do have installed on my desktop). But I'll have to try it next time I run Cinnamon
