Talika vs Windows 7 taskbar

Is talika a windows 7 taskbar clone?
* Oh no! The project was started  before(Jan 2008) windows 7 was not available and xfce-desktop already has a iconbox applet.

But what about windows previews and pin to panel?
* They are idea's of talika fans/users. Windows previews are inspired from kde4 interactive previews (may be they are inspired from windows 7). And pin to panel from docbarx.

I had never used Windows 7 even for a single minute (I use windows in office but that is XP Pro).

Hate it if it is unusable for you, not just for you think it is a win 7 taskbar clone.

Talika - A icon only window list for gnome panel

  Talika is a gnome panel applet that manages the list of opened windows with icons only. This is my second GTK+ project.

Someone will ask why you are developing this when similar apps ??X etc. exists ?
* Oh! sorry i was not able to find any such applet at that time so i started to develop my own. And thanks for advice. I think it is very useful to me. May be for you !

Two days back I released 0.48 version of Talika. It addes preview, pin to panel features to it. But of-course It didn't crash after whole day of use.

I promise next versions will include improvement of existing features and your ideas too.
