    ... but only if you type this into the terminal

    Code:
    defaults write com.apple.dock mineffect suck
    Make sure to log out and in again to enable the new minimise effect!

    (No idea why Apple doesn't enable this by default, its rather cool)

    tinkertool

    just download tinkertool. You can just choose all those options from a menu there.

    Remember to type
    Code:
    killall Dock
    after to restart the Dock!

    It works better when the dock is on the side of the screen, IMO.

    Yes.
    Open Terminal (Spotlight it or its in Applications:Utilities) and paste
    Code:
    defaults write com.apple.dock mineffect suck
    into it (press enter). Then type
    Code:
    killall Dock
    and press enter. Your Dock should dissapear briefly and return in a few seconds. Now, when you minizie you should see a different effect!
    To "uninstall" goto System Prefs and select your 'old' minimize effect from the Dock tab. Back in Terminal, type
    Code:
    killall Dock
    again and press enter.
