I used to love gnome system monitor, ans used it often. But now, they changed the look to make it fit to Gnome 3 style, and it just doesn't fit to my desktop any more. So I actually have two questions:
- Is it OK to just run an old version of the program, or are there reasons to have the newest version?
- Is there something like gnome-system-monitor, e.g. similar GUI, and gtk based?
EDIT: Here is a screenshot.
I like the way it has tabs to show different content. The leftmost one shows system information, the next one lists the processes, the visible one shows resources, and the last one gives some information about the file systems, e.g. free space.
For the replacement, I don't care so much about the system and file system information, but the processes and resources tabs are important.
