Task bar - Top, Bottom, Auto hide -- preferences

Just a curious question

What do most people set their taskbar in W7 -- Bottom, Top, LHS, RHS, autohide etc.

Totally useless info but just curious.

I have mine at the TOP and on Autohide.

Cheers

Bottom...default / small icons, non-hidden. I just can't get used to it anywhere else.
