Hmm, okay, that distinction hadn't registered, but as far as your
average user is concerned it's to the right of the taskbar/status area
separator, so it's in the status area.  Well, I always thought it was
anyway :)

I think you might have to turn it on in the Audio control panel or
something.  Once it's there it works much like the GNOME one, i.e. you
click it to get a volume slider.  Windows definitely treats it more like
a status icon than it does the clock, though, as it will disappear into
the "not recently used" section of the status bar if you haven't changed
the volume for a while.  Unlike the clock, which doesn't move even if
you haven't looked at the time for a while :)
