Do you prefer the taskbar buttons combined or not combined?

Hi, i want to know and why if you prefer the taskbar buttons combined or not?

One good thing about keeping them combined is that it makes it look neater and in a way gives you more room to add to the taskbar and perhaps the only downfall is the buttons are not labeled.

Combined with labels hidden. I like the slick, clean look of just icons on the taskbar.

I want to see as much information on the taskbar as can fit, and it hasn't gotten too crowded yet.

Combined. It's an appearance feature of Windows 7 that makes it Windows 7 and not vista or Xp. It's unique.
