They have thought of the taskbar thing. It's called The Dock, and it's been in Mac OS X since the beginning, and dates back even further to NeXTStep, a company and Unix flavor that Steve Jobs came up with after being ousted from Apple.
There are programs for Windows to mimic this functionality, but now that Apple has a patent on The Dock, their future is rather uncertain.
As most of you probably have watched the Windows 7 Demo a couple of times now. I'm trying to see if there are programs out there that can do something similar to those features.
You can post any program that well copy the functionality of Windows 7 you want.
The one I'm looking for is to change the Task bar buttons to just have the Icons. (so the icons would stay just no more text) I'm actually kind of surprised nobody has though of this before?
Do you know of a program that can do this, or any of the windows 7 tweaks?
