iTunes - you can de-authorize individual computers as often as you need in the menu of 'Store' - 'Deauthorize this computer'. If you're taking care of individual machines as you decommission them, there shouldn't be any need for a total deauthorization of all machines more than once a year. At least I hope you don't experience that many drives dying on you. I've had at least 15 computers authorized in the 4 years I've been using OS X and have made use of the 'deauthorize all' one time.

Amazon Unbox - the competitor to iTunes - allows 2 computers to be authorized - there is no place to deauthorize all of them, it must be done from the computer that was authorized. If a drive dies or say you do a fresh install of Windows without deauthorizing, well, you're just down to only being able to use 1 computer.

The Dock - seems to operate pretty much the same as the Windows Taskbar - you either have it hidden or it's shown all the time and your open apps do not cover it. How would you "see" the dock if it is behind other windows?

(And yes, unfortunately, the Mac world has it's fanboys the same as Windows and Linux have theirs.)

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
