Windows 7: Where do you prefer your taskbar?

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Have it at the left side. If I'm just using one monitor (like on a laptop), it has to be at the bottom though. But, seeing as I have so much horizontal real estate, I decided that I would put it at the left so I could read more of a webpage before scrolling, and I can't see myself ever putting it back.

Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit

I had it to the left side for a couple months back in '02 and I had it at the top for most of '08. The rest of the time, including now, I've left it at the bottom. When I'm used to it being at the top, it feels strange to use any other computer.

I just leave mine at the bottom, but I don't think it would really matter where it is, because I spend just about as much time using linux (which has taskbars on the top & bottom by default) as I do using windows, and I'm used to seeing lots of different types of desktop environments and UIs

Windows 8 Pro 64-bit

I'm used to it... nowhere. Having the taskbar on autohide has always been a thing I like to do, been doing it since I started using XP. Lately I've been getting more used to Alt+Tab, so I just put it away completely.

I keep it on the bottom and use ultramon to span the taskbar to the other 2 screens.

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.
General Discussion
What do you prefer?
Well with IE9 just released and all of the other browsers out there, which one do you currently prefer or use? If you were to ask me it would be either IE9 or Firefox 4, they both work about the same on my machine.
