Sorry, I should have phrased that better.  I meant the taskbar was
"born" only in the sense that it was added to Windoze.  We all know MS
hasn't really had too many ideas on their own -- except perhaps
Microsoft Bob <g> -- but my point was that they actually did do
usability studies.  And they proved that Win 3.x was no good and that
other people's ideas (eg a taskbar) were better.  So they stole them
too and "innovated" them into Windoze...
