    Really basic, IE only use for backup, network symbol, steam, afterburner for graphics card fan, and AVG anti virus.

    Finder, Mail, Tinderbox, Anxiety, Google Chrome, iStudiez Pro, Reminders, Notes, and Parallels.

    All the usual suspects - Chrome, Media Player Classic, Utorrent, Alcohol 120, itunes and Firefox.

    Use my desktop to dump stuff and clean it up later. Meto kills the entire way I work on my machine. Guess I'm sticking to 7 till something better comes along like I did with XP, that or make the switch to Ubuntu. I hear they are going to be supporting much more in the near future.

    As previously said, things are indexed. I only really have things pinned if they are going to be open most of the time anyway. I use cmd and notepad a LOT at work, and they still aren't pinned (I prefer to WIN + type). So, this is what I have at home:

    Explorer, MediaPlayer (or whichever), Opera. Further down, I have the Recycle Bin, and in the notifications area I have Steam pinned.
