    Here's mine, pretty basic hehe:

    Oh, and if anyone's interested, I googled a way to hide labels in the taskbar, but without combining redundant windows (I hate having to click twice, hehe).
    To make it work like that, you have to open Regedit, go to:
    'HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics'
    Create a string called 'MinWidth' and set the value to '54'. Restart and enjoy :]
    I like it better this way, at first can seem troublesome since you may have many of the same without labels (say WLM convos or open folders) but, I don't know, I usually remember them. Worst case scenario you'll have to use the Live Thumbnail thingy and click twice, which you would have to do if you were combining anyway ^^ (or just click click click till you find what you were looking for :D)

    If you mean you are sick of the Windows 7 theme, there are many beautiful transparent aero themes out there for 7.

    That is what I mean, I am tired of the same thing. To many aero themes, and I get tired of the tool bar. Either way, I changed the theme already ... Kept the same wallpaper and such, though. The colors on the last one were too black.
