Does Anyone Else Think Leopard's dock is much cooler than Tiger's?

I've always hated Tiger's dock. The way it's all 2-dimensional and only takes up a bit of the screen always sort of bugged me...

One of the many reasons I'm waiting until October to get my iMac.

uh why dont you jus buy Leopard when it comes out. It's only $129 for an upgrade and there's nothing wrong with Tiger.

Werd. The dock in Leopard looks pretty cool, but I'm not sure if I like it better than clear dock.

I like it, but I've been using ClearDock for some time so I don't know. I suspect I'll give the new dock a try, but if I don't like it, I'll go back to ClearDock.

Hmm..yes I love the reflections. I also like the new stacking ability, a very nice new feature.

I think my dock (yes I did say dock) looks better using cleardock. Is that a shelf under the items in Leopard's dock?

I contributed in another thread, but I think I'd find the reflection on the floor of Leopard's dock really distracting. I love the simple dock in Tiger, I set it really small so it keeps out my way. I LOVE the look of Leopard but the dock, meh. I prefer simple.

I like the look of Leopard's dock, but I agree that I think it would become distracting after a while, I'd probably reset it to the old one. It reminds me of the "r3ally kewl" transparency stuff in Vista - it looks nice, but why..?

I judge you when you use poor grammar.

I have no problems with the current Dock, like all things, it changes. Looking for new, whether or not improved in Leopard.
