o.k.

you might be right, but it never hurts to ask. The feature of aero peek to see desktop is useful, but crossing the screen to use it makes it less appealing a feature for me. Bumping this topic also helps to get the ideas some attention!

It was made to have the show desktop easier/faster to use.

In the quick launch you had to look for the button, with the new button you can blindly throw your mouse cursor to the appropriate corner without having to search for a button.

Yea that works great on a single monitor setup. Dual monitor not so much.

Can't please em all I suppose. Even then though, you're on par with the old style quicklaunch/show desktop as you'd have to hunt anyways.

you can 'calm down' the button, by removing the mouseover action - right click taskbar >> properties >> uncheck 'use aero peek...' - but i don't know if you can get rid of it completely...
