    I don't want to see a surge of task bars at the top lol.
    If Microsoft goes their usual way you should be able to move it to the bottom like you can move it to either side or the top at the present time. Really don't see them going the way of Mac OS X.

    Hi there
    judging by a few of the leaked features of Windows 8.1 Update the taskbar is likely to be of much more use than it currently is. I hope for instance that Custom Toolbars (already available and useful in Windows 8 / 8.1) could be activated by pressing a user KEY rather than having to use the mouse -- this then gives a really useful FLEXIBLE cascading menu system which could be very popular -- also avoiding the need of 3rd party apps to provide decent menuing.

    The advent of popular new "Mini Desktop" systems (one sector of the PC market STILL GROWING !!! shows there's still a market for classical computer users who don't do everything by touch screens.

    The taskbar will be moveable as it is now I'm sure -- the whole idea anyway of having "Fixed Widgets" is going backwards -- people have all sorts of different monitors these days (and more of them too) so fixing the toolbar at the TOP of any particular screen is a stupid idea.

    Cheers

    Oh yes. . .Intel's answer to the Mac Mini. . .. . .There are a few other computer manufactures creating these mini-deskstops. Not to bad when equipped with an i5 3330 Quad, and an SSD with 8 gigs of ram. . .(Sweet). . .

    Oh wow, this really looks user friendly.[/sarcasm]
    I recall the beta Win 8 looked and worked much like win 7 with some task manager tweaks. I wouldnt't trust MS to have the beta Win 9 looking like the finished product.
