This is standard Pop!_OS 20.04, including the wallpaper.
I use the extension "Dash to Dock". I like it on the left, sort of like old Ubuntu Unity. And it uses screen real estate better than a dock at the bottom.
I've really only slightly modified the out-of-the-box experience here, as I like what comes as standard. I know lots of people are exited about the new Pop!_OS 21.04 and its Cosmic desktop. It looks cool, but I'll wait until the next LTS (22.04, I gather) to upgrade. I must be getting old.

PS Hi, Barney! Congrats on the PhD! :)

This is probably my favourite desktop of all. I have used Ubuntu MATE for many years. I had 21.04, with the old school desktop layout, on my machine until a few weeks ago. I have a full list of things I do to it after installing (as I do with whatever system I install). One thing I do like is that I can change the clock. From my notes on Ubuntu MATE 21.04:

Quote

To get the clock to show, for instance, "Sunday, 25 April, 9.00", I need to use the following at the command line:
dconf write /org/mate/panel/objects/object-2/prefs/format "'custom'"
dconf write /org/mate/panel/objects/object-2/prefs/custom-format "'%A, %e %B, %_H.%M'"
If there is a problem, it's likely the clock is not at "object-2", so I'll need to find where these settings are and make the substitution.

I wish I could get the clock sorted that way on my GNOME Shell (Pop!_OS 20.04) desktop.

Well I got bored of PopOS so now I am trying something new. Zorin OS 16. Customized the interface of course.

I'll tell you how to make your OS as fast as POP. Get the following extension:

 

https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/945/cpu-power-manager/

 

And set it to MAX. All of them. Even on Preferences.

 

Then get GNOME TWEAKS from software store and shut off ALL animations:

 

My Zorin OS is flying like an F-16 after doing all that. As fast as PopOS now.
