Will there be compatability for
1. tray objects, eg media player, winamp with tray plugin, if you dont know what i mean, it like having your program intergrated into the taskbar
2. internet explorer object, lots of programs use the internet explorer activex control in their programs, to display web pages
3. some sort of os skining / themeing

1. Yep, already is working as far as i know.

2. the Mozilla ActiveX control works as an alternative to the IE control for the various web things that some programs which require IE.

3. skinning/theming will happen eventually, at the moment theres much more important things to do within the core of the operating system, however im sure tools like WindowsBlinds, etc.. will work as compatibility increases, if not alternative shells are always an option.
