I'm very pleased with the new task bar, as it's very functional and easy for me to switch between most used programs that I have pinned. I like the new look, it's refreshing and easy to see. I really like the idea of being able to pin the icons as needed. I also like the idea of being able to customize the color of it. As far as the start button goes, it's round, big deal, I just deal with it, as I've got more important things to be concerned about.
