Description:

Bongos is a new Social Desktop being developed, currently, by a small team. I\\\'m the Chief Designer tasked with developing the GUI and general artwork that will be shipped along with Bongos.

The aim of Bongos is take all of your favourite social web activities - your twitter, facebook, myspace, indentica, flickr and so on - and integrate them into your desktop. Bongos is looking to be cross-distro and possibly cross-plaform. Primarily it\\\'ll be KDE-based, but we would like a GNOME team as well.

We\\\'re calling on all artists, coders, developers, idea-makers and People-With-Opinions to come to our forum and contribute what you will! We\\\'d love to hear what ideas you have.

This is a great idea.

I was waiting to have something similar to this. Will eagerly wait for the first release.

Just one suggestion : Can we resize it? For me the height looks little bigger because many users will have other plasmoids on the desktop. If this is a plasmoid type then I am sure we can resize it.

Thanks for the comments! Yes, I imagine the sidebar plasmoid would be resizeable, my next demonstration involves showing our WebView that would occupy the main desktop; it will be a plasmoid that points to a local host and displays various pages from various sites.

Really good idea but the theme looks too solid.
