    You know, the dock can go on the left right and bottom. I was thinking it would be nice to have the dock on the top, just below the white menu bar, which cannot be hidden (or itd be kinda lagged). I was just wondering if any of you would like it there?
    I personally right now prefer it on the bottom only because the top is unavail. (course window space would be compromised.)

    I don't think I'd like it at the top. I have it at the bottom and I also sometimes have it on the right side.

    I have mine on the left, only because I cannot put it on the right side of the left monitor in my dual display set up (as you can the task bar in Windows). Oh, and it is certainly possible to put the Dock at the top:

    Dock Placement
    You can change the dock location with no additional software, using the built-in defaults command line tool. Launch Terminal.app and enter any of these commands:
    defaults write com.apple.dock orientation left
    defaults write com.apple.dock orientation right
    defaults write com.apple.dock orientation top
    defaults write com.apple.dock orientation bottom
    defaults write com.apple.dock pinning start
    defaults write com.apple.dock pinning center
    defaults write com.apple.dock pinning end

    Then restart the Dock:
    kill -1 `ps auxc | grep &#39ock' | awk '{print $2}'`

    To achieve your goals of putting the Dock in the top, you would issue these two commands:
    defaults write com.apple.dock orientation top
    kill -1 `ps auxc | grep &#39ock' | awk '{print $2}'`


    Tinker Tool is a free, easy interface for the defaults command and likewise lets you change the Dock positioning to the top.

    it would be cool if you could make it Hide horizontally. not on the side of the screen, but rather have it pan out to the left or to the right
