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

    Paint, notepad, Media Player and Firefox

    On startup, Firefox is just a WindowsKey+4 away :)

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

    Why? I use these applications the most frequently.

    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.

    Old image, but my desktop has been like this since the beginning of the year, I made/modified a few widgets.

    Doesn't look bad, might update or something when I have time.

    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.
