I just thought i should point this out to whoever has not noticed it. Because i just did and i thought it was one of those attention to detail characteristics KDE developers have. I just noticed that the amarok taskbar i con shows track progress. It starts as the howling wolf in the circle outline in deep blue and ever so subtly, from the top, it starts fading to a lighter shade of blue.

I must say now that i'm a GNOME user though i just appreciate good software.
