There is no doubt Mac OS X Stacks feature is one of the best feature to date Apple has added to the Mac Dock. In comparison, the new Windows 7 Taskbar, a.k.a. Superbar by many has lots of great intuitive, time-saving features as well.
The Superbar can group buttons (icons) of the same program together but it cannot group similar programs’ icon into a stack with one button. This is where Mac OS X has the upper hand (with Stacks) over Windows 7 Superbar. So you want to have Stacks on Superbar?
Stack It On Superbar!
There is this third party app called 7stacks that put Mac Dock’s Stacks feature right into your Superbar. Bingo!

7stacks is an easy to use, free app that lets Windows 7 (and Vista and XP) users have “stacks” of icons in their Taskbar (in 7) or QuickLaunch Toolbar (in Vista and XP). By using stacks, users can reduce icon clutter, and combine a group of related icons into a single icon. For instance, if you use application suites such as Microsoft Office, OpenOffice, or Adobe CS4, you can have all the suite’s icons combined into one icon!
So simply put, 7stacks adds the Mac OS X Stacks to your Windows 7 Taskbar (as well as in Vista and XP). If you had experience with Mac OS X Stacks, you will get the idea. If you don’t get 7stacks, install, play and experience with it!
