This raises a question about who the product is targeted for:  If one's 
doing multimedia and wants a backdrop, they probably don't want the Dock 
and the menu bar.  If they want the Dock and the menu bar, they probably 
don't want the backdrop.

So what is the target market who prefers both a backdrop and the Dock/menus?

I'll take bets that a different differentiator find its way into the 
product within 12 months or less....
