Am I the only person who thinks this is the worst part of OS X?
M8 u fukn wot? That's like saying the start menu is a trivial part of Windows.
OP, I agree, it's pretty shitty. It's confounding that so many Linux users go out of their way to install software that mimics the dock.
More of a pet-peeve for me, but I absolutely despise how it must always stay on top. I don't really like hiding it, due to the delay and because of expose, so having it beneath the windows would be nice. It would also be nice if they told you the pixel size of the dock, just like in Unity, and then let you adjust its size based on the pixel count.
>not having a minimal amount of apps at the bottom and using cmd + spacebar for everything else
Yeah, that resizes the dock, but it doesn't give you a numerical value for how many vertical or horizontal pixels the dock is taking up. Moreover, the settings for the dock give you some dumbshit scale with the labels 'small' and 'large'; neither of those things tell you in pixels how much space the dock is taking up.
It's alright. I usually scale it down to 32 pixels so it doesn't take much screen space. Not having it means I can't easily figure out which application is open. I use it for switching between applications a lot because it's more consistent than Expose, which just randomly orders your applications it seems. I also use the dock to access my downloads folder.
I never use it to open applications. Spotlight is more than good enough for it.

>tfw i have no face
A command that would specify the size of a Finder window, or something of the sort, by pixel size. So, like, if I wanted to make a Finder window 576 pixels tall, I could manually specify that I want it exactly 576 pixels high. Or am I asking too much?
>not carefully sorting your auto-hidden dock with everything you need so that you always know where each app is
Adobe stuff on the left, browsers centre-left, development stuff over on the right. I don't actually use my dock that often (muh Alfred) but when I do, I know where to aim my mouse.
There probably is a setting that allows you to set the default size. Resizing the window on the fly can't be done this way. There should be an applescript that allows this, though.
I don't know, man. I think it's pretty comfy once you get used to it.
However, I just noticed that whenever I use cmd+shift+4 to take a screenshot, it makes the dock non-transparent. cmd+shift+3 works fine.
>not having a minimal amount of applications, programs, scripts, games and softwares at the bottom and using command + spacebar for everything else
You are literally a faggot, fuck off.
Better this than Modern UI.
I don't mind the icons since I change them for muh uniformity. Though I do feel it's a shame that the Dock is getting shittier by the milestone. Even the damn app indicators are drawn by the system so you can't change them.
Does anyone even use the Apple menu?
Why does the dock take up space just sitting there 99.999% of the time?
Just merge the dock and the Apple menu into some kind of menu where you can start, like, anything from, and I'd be very happy.

it can hide, which everyone does unless they're retarded.

it's called spotlight. cmd+space and type whatever you want in. you can launch apps, open files, access settings, do web searches, open webpages, etc.
>turn it into the windows taskbar
no. The Apple menu is generally for functions that you use far less regularly than the Dock, but are important enough so that they're easily in reach.
Not to mention that there's also the iOS-esque Launchpad if you want that sort of thing.
I have no idea. I thought I might be useful when it first appeared but it quickly gets cluttered up with all extra shut that you end up installing. The extra adobe apps are especially a nightmare.
>The start menu that isn't in Windows any more
That they're putting back because their users complained so much
i gotta say, the handoff between devices is nice. read a menu on your desktop, click the phone number on the page, and your phone calls it.
other than that, there's not much going on.
yes, you could hide it and use spotlight to launch applications.
But fuck OP, he is obviusly just trolling. He probably downloaded this image from google and never used OS X anyways.
pic related, this is how finder icon looks
that's just a shitty design. typical apple.
