  1. Great idea on paper, but doesn't work all that well on Win7. Disappears sporadically, despite turning off the “Hide when you launch application” option, and doesn't reappear easily (you have to toy around with it in the taskbar). Couldn't change the background, either; at that point (after about 10 mins of playing with it), I removed it.

    Too much trouble for no reward.

    Maybe after a few more versions…
