|hmm, first thing i see is that 60%/70% of the taskbar is dominated by buttons with text.|
| plz remove that text!|
No, don't! Most icons don't render cleanly enough to be included on the tray.
|text is for the menu, not for simple quickstart buttons.|
Change it in your own settings. I think it's better as a system default to make things as clear as possible. With trays usually 24 pixels or smaller, the icons just aren't clear enough for most (and especially new) users to sort out. Users are free to reconfigure to suit their own tastes and thresholds for bloat.
