Default Your Taskbar. Icon or Labels?

This has been something that I have been curious about for a while now. Since the release of Windows 7, many users seem to enjoy the use of just icons in the task bar. Why is that? What's your reason?

So do you prefer Large Icons? Small Icons with Labels?

I added a poll, when voting please pick [Icon or Labels] and [Large Icons or Small Icons].

Icon:
Label:

I personally prefer having labels and make them never combine. I want to know which window is which at all times and having just an icon and waiting for the tab window to fade in is annoying. You could say I'm lazy and have no patience.

Large Icons. I find that it reduces the clutter- sometimes when you have many windows open you can't really read the labels anyway. The icon tells me instantly which window is to which program.

Large icons for me.

I never have enough windows open for it to bug me having to click twice.

Definitely label. When I have massive windows open for projects, I need to know where each one is.

I don't know how to change it so... large icons /o/

I never have multi-windows anyway except for skype, except now they fixed the minimum width so I'm sad ;_;
