I have no idea.

In searching for it, the web pages at
do not include screenshots, so I do not know of its appearance or
implied functionality.

In Debian 6, with its GNOME 2 interface, I have, at the bottom of the
screen, a taskbar below the panel, with the three menu types
(Applications, Places,System) at the left end of the panel, and the
system monitor applet to the left of the date and time at the right
end of the panel.

I want to be able to reproduce that in Debian 7 and, Debian 8, if they
have the functionality.
