Application List and Menu Bar System
I noticed something sorta funny, when you open up the applications list, by mashing cmd + opt +esc, the menu bar disappears when the list becomes active. Does anyone have any clues to why this happens?

Also , The whole concept of the preferences being xml files is pretty cool. Does anybody know of any sites that have more stuff you can add, such as the translucent terminal window. OS X PB seems like there is a bunch of stuff that is disabled and only takes a little bit of hacking to enable it.

[Editor's note: Search elsewhere here for the command line hacks, as there are a bunch of them!]

That is interesting behavior ... maybe it disppears because the force-quit has taken
complete control of the system? I tried launching ProcessViewer to see if anything
interesting happens when force-quit is pressed, but there were no notable changes. I set
the update to every second (not recommended for optimum system performance!), and
couldn't see any behavior or new process tied to force-quit.

ProcessViewer keeps updatingin the background, too, so other system processes are
getting time. Maybe an alternate theory is that the desktop is suspended until you close or
select a task to quit...

Have you submitted to Apple?

no I actually haven't submitted this to apple. it doesn't really seem like bug, just something
strange going on.
