If you're going to make the dock go away, this is the way. And if you're still wondering why, well, here's why. http://www.asktog.com/columns/044top10docksucks.html

Be Warned: this will also kill your Command-Tab menu switching capabilities, not just your Dock.

Success! New version works as advertised. Now I need a replacement alt-tab program. Although, I admit with the dock pinned to the bottom left (with tinkertool) and turning off the effects, it wasn't that bad. I do think with a replacement application menu (X-Assist) and dragthing it will be much happier. Spatial finder here i come!

Regarding the "Top 10 reasons the dock sucks", as cited by "Anonymous:" Anyone who feels that strongly about the dock should not be using OS X. The dock is one of the nicest features of OS X, although the article claims it is a copy of the WIndows taskbar, which is so far from the truth it makes the author sound like an idiot. I understand that some people may want to get rid of the dock, most likely people who have been Mac users for a long time and are used to the way previous Mac OS GUI's worked. However, one of the reasons I switched to OS X from PC was the dock, and its ingenious functionality. I think the dock is probably a big factor in helping people who are used to the windows taskbar switch to OS X. I personally never gave a Mac OS a second glance until OS X was introduced.

Yeah well, that's all well and fine, but if you're a graphic artist and have LaunchBar and you'll want the Dock gone as much as I do. Even with hiding it keeps on popping up everytime I try to erase/make a mask or just accidentally move my pen to the bottom of the screen - or the side when scrolling. There should at least be a way of turning it off if you don't want it.

OS 9 (and 8) had pop-up windows, which I used and still use when I run 9. They are quick, customizable and are all that the Dock is not.
