If you want your picture inside the start menu you could try putting the Taskbar at the top, although I don't understand why that would be preferable, I personally like having it where it is.

Taskbar on top

Yeah,I like the task bar on the bottom also,I've tried it on top on other os installs,and no way!You know I just don't get it,but why have the user pic inside the frame on Vista,Server 2008,and now 7 with the basic install or theme,and sticking half way out on Aero or Windows 7 theme? To me it's like a picture on the wall with half the pic sticking out of the frame!I can't believe that I'm the only one who feels this way,and I don't think I am because a guy,VG,on deviant art,that made a theme for Vista basic,that gives you the Aero look,and he said when he can he will do one for Win7 also,so I'm hoping it won't be long.I know this is just the first beta release,and maybe I'm overeacting,but it's just one of those little things that drives me crazy,like an itch you can't scratch.For now I'll just work around it and see what the future brings. And thanks for your and everybody elses quick responses.I think I really like this forum!

Yep. I saw the recycle bin and the Computer. Did you have other changed ones?

EDIT
So here is my theme to comemerate the the final season of Battlstar. (Ok, not really. I just had a idea for a theme). I played with padding and stuff in this one, and will add icons in the next release.
