Jamie. Could you tell me which line to reshack to disable icons in the start menu? Also, is the hover style final for the taskbar? I think it looks real choppy compared to vs aspects you normally cover. I think it'd look better if the hover style was glossed or smoothed out more? It's looks like blotchy?
But if I may offer some input (only if you're releasing this for Win8): Most of your Win8 VS's have a problem with combined taskbar buttons as they don't look like they were edited. I don't know if that's a limitation with Win8 skinning or an oversight, but I thought I'd tell you about it anyway.
