Yeah afaik, but for some reason it keeps making my pictures a small version like the one I posted above and I don't know how to find the normal version. I think that's probably just me though, doing something weird as usual. What OS are you running there LBAWO? Looks pretty neat.

Yeah it's most certainly Windows 7. It follows the aero theme + colours you choose; mines clearish/whitish glass of course.

Haha, yeah, I think you mentioned it in the previous desktop pics thread, too. I'd be up for a game sometime, I go by illu45. I don't play much atm, but I used to play in the evening (around 9-11 EST [GMT -5]) when I played. Not sure what would be a good time for you...

Yeah DevArt.

Does the dock grow when you get close to it?

Yeah, I've got the size down all the way and magnification's turned on. Means I have more space for everything else. This is how big it gets for me...
If you also want to know what each program is...

I prefer having the bare minimum in the dock and launching the rest via spotlight when required. I don't see the point of having a dock filled with a ton of icons.

To be honest the dock doesn't take up a lot of desktop space, you can't really compare filling your dock up with stuff to filling your windows desktop with shortcuts to everything. The dock is out of the way and you're going to leave that much of the screen alone anyway because the dock is there, whatever size it is and however full it is, so you might as well put all your programs there. The point is, obviously, that it's much quicker to just click it in the dock than have to search for everything you want to use all the time.

I see a tiny dock though, that's not very usable imo (even with magnification, which has its usability problems in itself).

Spotlight is an excellent app launcher, imo it's about as fast or faster compared to clicking something on the dock.
cmd+space, type the first three or so letters of the application, press enter.
