    which way do you have it, and why?

    imo having it on top edge looks cooler, just can't get used to it :crosseyed:

    I'm kinda torn, I have used both (windows & Ubuntu) and I'm sure I could get used to it being at the top... but the bottom just feels more natural. Also, I feel that if its at the top it makes the application you have running look cluttered since you have both the taskbar and toolbar(s).

    Edit: I'm a tard and picked top edge... could a mod please change it?

    Which part is the "task bar"? Is it the part which shows the list of currently active programs? In which case I have mine (the dock) at the left side of my screen on auto-hide.

    At the bottom, by default. Haven't found a reason to change. :)

    When using mac themes back in the day I moved it up top but it kept getting in the way of things. Back at the bottom where sensible people leave it now :)

    Use it at the top.

    The bottom just makes me feel retarded.

    No offense to y'all who use it at the bottom, but sometimes you have to look up ;)
