How to create an "Desktop Taskbar Application"

Hi,

I would like to know if it's still possible on Windows 2000 or XP to create
a "Desktop Taskbar Application" (An application who attach it-self to the
edges of the Desktop screen) in VB.NET or C#

I know how to do it with the WIN32 API. the following link show how to do
it: http://support.microsoft.com/default...b;en-us;134206

According to this article (Q134206), it's the Windows Explorer shell of 95,
98 and NT4.0 who allowed this possibility. Is it still possible ?

If so, I want to go to the next level, I mean with .NET. Is there a Class
in the .NET Framework that will allow me to do that???

There's a pretty good one on CodeProject in C#:
