Which do you like better? I'm going with the Windows 7 Taskbar. Surprised

I just think Aero Peek and the menus are handy. Your stuff in the Dock just kinda sits there in comparison.

I hide my leopard dock, I'd hide my tool bar if I could. I don't care for the W7 dock either.

One of the most important reasons for preferring MacOS is its uncluttered, but feature-rich front end. WY-WI-WY-WI:
What You Want Is Where You Want It Very Happy

All essentials can be reached, or made to be reached from the menu bar - the dock is a cute, but very nifty bonus.
By comparison, ALL GUI versions of Windoze are a bigger mess than my grandchildrens' bedrooms.

Deary me...Scooper.

Why limit it to OS X Dock or the Vista/Windows 7 taskbar...?

Why not consider Enlightenment, Gnome, KDE-4, XFCE, or even the basic X window system...?

They're all equally good, with lots of valuable features..

I voted for the new W7 taskbar. To be honest, I like the taskbar in Windows XP better than the Dock when it comes to window management. I think the new taskbar in W7 just takes this to the next level. It also feels less cramped and allows you to have a crazy amount of stuff open.

MacOS: Spaces? Not as good as CodeTek, but since CodeTek's virtual desktops has not yet upgraded to 10.5.x it will do for me for the time being.

OS X and Ubuntu (Linux) still kick Windows 7 in that department. I also think that Expose is the best window switcher out there. Windows Flip 3D doesn't even come close.
