downplayed the noisyness of the icons a bit, basicly turned of the lables on most of them and reduced the icon size on those that need a label (that folder cluster and the games in the corner).
killed the bugs and the pumpkin to as they where an old attempt at branding. and i reverted to the normal taskbar (minus the tasks, they are in a vertial area hidden at the left edge of the screen, bump to find).
background is the second attempt at making a circuitboard like image. maybe is should add a some more lines and other details:P
btw, the image of the original post now points to the current setup...
