FWIW, like Glenn, I don't know exactly what are taskbars and sidebars.
I vaguely know they're thingies that I've heard mentioned, especially in
a Windows context.

I think replacing "the task bar and side bar" with "task bars and side
bars" is about as good as we can make it.
Better not add terminologu such as "panels" (used also in XFCE), since
these have a fairly strong but different meaning in other systems and
will just lead to more confusion.
