Random fact of the day: "system tray" is the wrong name

You know the little area at the end of the task bar, at the opposite end from the Start button, where the clock lives and, often, various little icons?

Some people call it the "system tray" or the "tray".

Apparently, its proper name is the "notification area". (That entry also gives a clue as to why people might think it's called a tray. Hysterical raisins, as so often.)
