What's in Your Dock?

I bet you’re either running Mac OS X or some kind of dock software on Microsoft Windows (RocketDock or ObjectDock). Either way, I’ve received a few emails from y’all asking what I have in my dock. I hate to disappoint, but there’s not much in it.

In my dock, you’ll find a few things. Mine is kept at the bottom of the screen and hidden automatically. I have the Mac Finder, the Mail icon, iCal, my downloads folder and Trash. That’s it. I don’t have a great amount of icons. I like things nice and neat.

I don’t really need icons in my dock. I can get to apps really quickly using Spotlight. Once in a while, I will use QuickSilver to launch something quickly using a keyboard shortcut. Obviously, if an app is running it will be in the dock until I’m finished with it.

If you prefer the look of Windows 7, you can run a beta of HyperDock on your Mac.

If you’re a fan of ObjectDock and would like to win one of five copies for yourself, simply send a tweet with @chrispirillo in it, and something about #ObjectDock. I will select five people at random to win a copy of ObjectDock Plus 2.0. Your Impulse username will be required in order to receive the prize.
