Windows 7: The “All New” Toolbar?

On the Windows 7 development blog, you can find an introduction to the new Windows 7 toolbar. Judge for yourself.

[quote]”It was 23 years ago on November 20, 1985 when Windows first shipped. As it just so happens, this first Microsoft graphical shell actually holds relevance to this post as it surfaced one of the industry’s first taskbar-like concepts. (…) By minimizing a window or dragging it to the bottom of the screen, the person was able to populate this rudimentary taskbar with a large icon corresponding to the running window. She could then get back to this window by clicking or dragging this icon to the desktop.“[/quote]
