    I'm a kind of person who doesn't wanna try impossible things, instead of copying and trying to mimic things I take what's best and in my opinion will look interesting in environment which somebody gives us...Instead of putting there Apple sign and trying to mimic Finder bar or something, I've made it with usability on mind... Start menu is a way to start searching, so it suits functionality and look too.

    For all people who want to use dock and don't feel the colorful flag orb which makes chinese lollipop from your computer :)

    Two versions: Plain blue & Animated white

    Note: Works only with build 7000, EN. Replace it at your own risk.

    To do it -> take ownership of old Explorer.exe, rename it and copy new one. Then Ctrl+Shift+Esc, close Explorer.exe process and Run typing "explorer".

    PS> Soon I will release Visual Style mod with Leopard's caption buttons, buttons, sliders on Aero.

  2. u are using it on PC? if yes, I have to tell you bookmarks bar depends on size and font of your windows' menu item.

    I have it changed to 11 pix Lucida Grande and it takes just too much space in Safari.

    Also if you change font to something like Lucida G or Lucida Mac or OBFont, fonts in safari appear as Times New Roman.

    In this situations I just sacrifice using bookmarks bar because anyway I use topsites....

  3. i think that's good. better to have nothing if you anyway will decide to use thunderbird :) coz windows live is kinda hmmm nice but for me its design is hard to read, hard to see.

    bad, that they left windows calendar, because it was not so bad, and integrating it into mail is kinda forcing me to use mail.

    funny, I've installed so much stuff, and still starting fast as rocket. I would say 'how they did it?'

  4. reason of keeping windows was always games and now for me studies - programming in c++, but it feels like I'm finally happy off my win-laptop. seriously. can you imagine that asus machine, with 1ghz+, 2gb ram, nvidia go 9600, 300gb HD was making so much noise, the fan was working all the time even without nothing installed, just vista. and now? silence.

  5. Well, I'm using it since 5 days now, gotta say I've been using V. and my laptop was making so much noise, even when it was clean (no WB, no skins, no docks). After 20 mins of installation, W7 starts in about 14 seconds which is unbelievable (!) I swear, and works so silent, it's crazy. New superbar takes a lot from both Mac and Linux systems, it is really useful. Anyway, after those 5 days I turned on XWindows Dock on it, and it works extremely faster than on Vista which is also nice. But, I can't figure out where "Windows Calendar" and "Windows Mail" disappeared :)

  6. ...as long as I sit and play with Windows 7 beta, I see a nice request for next XWD which is only keeping me now from not using dock under W7... :) When you have in taskbar of W7 pinned shortcut of application (i.ex. Photoshop), when you click and hold an icon you see a list of recent opened documents in that app. It could be nice to have that kind of feature in dock, click n hold on app icon to see something like a stack but with recently opened documents in that app. It is really useful!

  7. AAbout "menu's bug" please tell what exactly did you do ? Because one screenshot isn't enough to fix it.

    the menu bug is shown when dock is set to always on top, then it takes focus off left lower part of desktop,

    something like invisible window in this part, which sits always on top of other windows so when you try to move for example files to playlist in itunes , you can't - you lose focus like you would have been moving them to some other app. the same with other apps, and right click in that space - XWD right click menu appears.
