After installing kde-3.2, which btw is very nais, I messed around with my desktop settings and came up with this.
I use IceQua for icewm for window decorations, Baghira QT widget style and Geramik for GTK+, all available here at kde-look.org
I use the "Universal Kopete" tab plug-in for the "Universal Sidebar" panel, and everything autohides smoothly in my top right corner. In case anyone was wondering.
My distro-of-choice is Gentoo. One distro to rule them all! (Yes I stayed up all night and watched LoTR TT EE, again)
