panel - The Gnome panel
panel The GNOME Panel is the heart of the GNOME user
interface and acts as a repository for the Main Menu, user
menus, application launchers, applets (applications which
run entirely within the panel), drawers, and several special
objects. The Panel was designed to be highly configurable.
You can easily customize its behavior and appearance and add
or remove objects to suite your personal needs and
preferences. You can even have multiple panels, each with
its own appearance, properties, and contents. This
flexibility allows you to easily create a comfortable and
efficient personalized desktop environment.
