Taskbar (or linux/mac equivalent) at the top or bottom?

Where is the "taskbar"?

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 ;)

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
