What's on Your Dock?

Here’s one for the OS X users amongst you. There’s an article over at O’Reilly called "What’s on Your Dock?":

"You know how it is. You’re sitting somewhere, next to another Mac user you don’t know (at a conference, in the Apple Store, on the plane, wherever), and you just can’t resist the urge to send a sideways glance at the other person’s Dock."

Brent Simmons, John Gruber and Jason Kottke all offered their docks up for inspection. You can always spot the real geeks because they’re the ones that keep the Terminal in the dock.

The author of the article must have plumb forgot to ask me what’s in my dock. Never mind. I’ll tell you anyway.

From left to right:

Finder, Mail, Address Book, iCal, Camino, Safari, Internet Explorer, NetNewsWire Lite, BBEdit, Transmit, Photoshop, Virtual PC, iTunes, iPhoto, Preview, TextEdit, a Photoshop droplet, Quicktime, iCal, my home folder, Trash.

I keep the dock on the bottom - on a seventeen inch iMac screen, that’s where there’s most room. Magnification is on (but not massively) and bouncing is off.

Incidentally, if you’d like to know more about my hardware, software and development environment, you’ll find all the details on my "about this site" page.
