First I want to thank JacobN for his rom builder and for the files to make the build 21916. Also to all the chefs on Modaco which helped me to learn about rom building. And to bobhero for the EzInput keyboard which I prefer over any other keyboard and the Sip menu changer .
I use this rom daily with no troubles. Lots of free ram always and most stable. I give the disclaimer that I am not responsible for anything that goes wrong though, you install this at your own risk. I made this for my own use, but have seen some who want transparent taskbars so thought I would share it is all. Enjoy.
Included in the rom:
Adobe Flash 2.1
EzInput Sip Menu Changer
(you need to go to this to activate the full keyboard in the EzInput 2.1)
HTC EzInput 2.1 Keyboard (with camera button fix)
Audio Note (Recorder)
File Manager (My Files)
Newer Main Menu
New Camera with date and time in file name
Samsung Photo Album
Samsung Task Switcher
Touch Calender (Schedule)
Office Mobile 2010
Auto Close Patch
My own Start screen and welcomehead...
There is only the Windows Today UI in this rom, Chome and Samsung Today are removed. Also no Samsung keyboards. If any other program is not listed above it also is not in the rom.
Here is a screenshot after I installed a metro taskbar from XDA.... attached (found it hehe)

Here is the download link. I only have account with mediafire sorry, if anyone wants to mirror this go ahead.
PagePool is 6 meg which is plenty for the rom. On first boot there is about 95 megs free ram and 240 megs free space.
Remember to go to the EzInput Sip Menu Changer and select Full QWERTY keyboard.
One thing to do after flashing this rom, make sure to do a hard reset immediately to make sure there is nothing from the previous one you had on your phone still there. Thanks to Umpal for reminding some to do this but I felt I should add this to the first post. If you are not getting your sms or you see 2 message folders, then the hard reset will correct that. It isn't a fault of the rom but just how things work when flashing phones... always do a hard reset.
Enjoy.... Its my personal rom and hope you like it!!
Let me know what you think, will appreciate any comments or suggestions (not that I can promise anything else LOL)
Here is the metro taskbar cab. It will be a bit different from my screenshot as I did a little bit of editing on a couple of the DLL files in it...
(if you want the dll files I edited, send me a PM and I will give them to you...)
