Hello tw33k, I did this as an experiment to help a user yesterday and I may keep it, it seems as it may make it very convenient to use the desktop.

On mine, I have:

3D Page Flip
My user area shortcut
Firefox
Itunes
Steam

Don't need nothing else, all my games have shortcuts in steam, i have even been able to clean up my desktop as there was a ton of shortcuts all over. I love Win 7 Jump lists and Taskbar

From left to right, Google Chrome, IE8, Zune, this one is called 'Connect to Projector' in the start menu(I use it to turn on and off my 2nd monitor), 5th is dropbox, and last but not least Windows Explorer

Edit: Just noticed, for the people who posted screen shots, I'm the only one who has set my taskbar to Small Icons.

It's one of the first things I set up after installing Windows. I've been using it since first available (98 I think) Very convenient indeed.
