I like that it shows only minimized windows (similar to WindowMaker). To
me the taskbar is useless atm (I have disabled it now) because it
becomes really cluttered with a lot of text that is hard for me to
connect with any running window. So when I'm ten times faster just
looking around my screen for the window I want, why should I use the
IMHO the current taskbar is _only_ usefull if one is running at least
one window maximized. 
Personally I think that fullscreen is a waste in larger resolutions (I'm
running 1600x1200) so the current setup is quite counter-productive for
me (useless taskbar and useless "maximize" button, also useless
"minimize" button and functionality because I can't find and restore
minimized windows easily).
