Okay, I've been seeing people using Windows XP that have a menu at the top of their screen that is hidden until they move their mouse over it.  It is not just the normal Windows "Auto-Hide" menu either.  I'll try to explain the menu to the best of my ability.  When the mouse is moved over it, it slides down (similiar to the autohide), and about 6 logos appear.  There is no background, only the logos.  The program logos on the right and left are smaller than the ones in the center (kind of like they are on a horizontal wheel, know what I mean?), and when the mouse is moved to the right or left of the menu, the menu scrolls in that direction.  This looks like an excellent feature and if anyone could let me know where I could get this feature (or enable it if it already exists on Windows), I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!

sounds a lot like the thing in Mac OS X... maybe look for a Mac OS X theme?

I think I know what you mean my friend told me about this a few months or so ago. I cant remeber the name of it. But if I rememeber it mimics the Max OSX menu on the bottom. I'll see if I can dig it up.

I found some that I think are it.  If anyone else wants to check them out, I'll post the names below.  All three can be found on downloads.com

AquaDock
ObjectDock - I think this one is it
