9/7     On the page there's this screenshot of
        top running in a semi-transparent window.  Does anyone know
        anything about that program and where to get it?
        \_ The Enlightenment window manager does the same thing... I think
           it's part of the window manager, not that particular version of
           top.  See for more example shots. -mogul, who
           has never used either of them
           \_ I would think it would be neither top nor the window manager
              doing this, but the terminal emulator program (xterm clone?)
              that does the transparency. -ERic
              \_ Upon looking at the page, it looks more to
                 me like they have an xterm-like program that they can load
                 images into the background of.  I don't know what it is, but
                 it looks  pretty nifty!
           \_ X Servers that provide psuedo-color overlay planes usually
              provide a transparent index.  so standard xterm w/ the right
              background color setting would do the trick?  or is it
              actually doing alpha-blending rather than overlay?  --karlcz
                 \_ It's called eterm.
                    \_ is there an url for eterm?
                       \_ check out --ERic
                \_ ETerm is a nifty concept, but it sucks to configure,
                   is slow, and you need 24 bit or higher to make the
                   backgrounds look even decent, for some reason --dbushong
        \_ it's not transparent. it's got a backgroudn. mail genehkan@xcf
           or myself if you want to learn how to make windows transparent. -ali
           \_ because nobody else would know how to do it :P
