Windows 7 Taskbar

The Taskbar in Windows 7 is as revolutionary as the original Taskbar was in Windows 95. Rather than reiterating how it works, ars technica has a good article describing it in detail and in comparing it to the Mac Dock. Although ars claims they are nothing alike, I have to disagree, Microsoft definitely got some ideas from the Dock. Although they may have arrived at the same UI all by themselves if the Mac Dock hadn't existed, the influence is undeniable.
