Really wish you guys would either make the window bigger on the task bar, or leave off all the text, and just show me the percentage.  It is soooo hard to see the number on so many processes, it jumps, so I think it says 4, but is there a number after that, let me look at it for five minutes, and it then it jumps right at the most critical point where the percentage is about to display, so you find yourself swinging your head back and forth, with your face three inches from ArcMap trying to determine when it will finish, just looking at the %, like run a large layer like county of riverside parcels, with the feature class to feature class tool, it gets to 3, then jumps to the next part of the scrolling message, was that a 0, or a 9.  Very frustrating dialog.  All tools are listed and it seems the percentage is in different locations.  Very hard to decipher.
