It would be great to see the miniature icons like how I can see that funny looking box at right of the Win7 taskbar.
I am still installing Win8, but, thank you for the Win8 101, because I didn't know I can get something at top-left. I know I can do bottom-left, but, top-left is new to me. So, thank you for the tips.
Go watch the Jensen Harris preview video on the main page. He shows off these tricks.
