Ah am I missing something, what does this do different than auto hide taskbar setting? Yeah I no it leaves the start button but is that really so helpful more than auto hide? Maybe its just me and I ain't tryin to be a hater I'm jus sayin.

@Orca My impression is that this program is more about the aesthetic. As the description states:

"... visually hide or un-hide only the taskbar ..."

And on the homepage:

"... you love a clean desktop and don’t want even a taskbar to mar your wallpaper ..."

The screenshot itself also merely shows off the interplay between the start button and wallpaper.
