I figured that Linux was not what you were looking for. But there it is so darn easy to do. Maybe one day you want to play around with it in virtual. Here is how. It is a lot of fun.

What you can do is install Rocketdock About RocketDock - , then put the icons you want onto the dock and set your task bar to Auto-Hide.
