    Do you consider placing icons on taskbar, placing them on desktop? I see the taskbar as an application that runs on desktop, not part of desktop. The taskbar can be hidden or moved to anyone of the four sides of desktop.

    nope only google chrome on the taskbar. I just go through the start menu to launch everything else. I tried the rocket dock app for a while which I really enjoyed but it started getting buggy so I got rid of it.

    yes the desktop and taskbar are different. it is very counter productive but I just like the cleaner look. you would then think that hiding the taskbar would appeal to me but honestly that drives me crazy

    My taskbar is empty except for the Start button and a few icons in the notifications area. I just keep my frequently used stuff on the desktop.

    I just use the standard Windows XP Quick Launch toolbar.

    It has(at work): Show Desktop, a Shortcut to our file server, FireFox, Chrome, IE, FileZilla, Thunderbird, Illustrator, Photoshop, Indesign, a stop watch app, and iTunes.

    Yeah and I can picture not having a Start Button drive me just as crazy.
