Get Windows 7 like Taskbar in Ubuntu with Talika


With Talika Gnome Panel Applet, you can get a Windows 7 like taskbar in Ubuntu. It is a lightweight alternative to the default window manager in Ubuntu and it supports window previews.

Features:
  • 'Icons Only' Taskbar
  • Window Previews
  • Grouping of similar windows
  • Show pin option for pinnable apps
  • Supports pinning via drag and drop
  • Option to show tasks from multiple monitors
  • Option to close group with middle click
  • Option to show preview on multiple windows only
  • Pinining support for openoffice & some wine apps (like picasa)
  • Choose custom icon for launcher
  • Option to use monochrome icons
  • Customizable icon sizes, space between icons and icon highlight color

Probably the most important feature about Talika is that it is really lightweight (6 mb in my case with 5 icons on applet) and would be ideal choice for low end machines.
