So, This is a small app that can Texturize your Taskbar (only the bar, not the start menu). I saw how Windowblinds 7 was toting this exact same thing as a major feature, and it got me mad, because i did this app back in 2002 more or less.
So i quickly re-created the app, added in tray support, and i may even get start menu support in some time soon.
This comes with 10+ textures that i made in about as many minutes.
This currently only work if your taskbar is set to the bottom, i have to add in detection of taskbar placement next.
This has only been tested in XP, but i suspect that in Vista / 7, in AERO, it would look positively kick ass!
