    I thought it would be better, if it would be a poll question :)

    Amazing! 90% of votes are for "bottom" Dock position with hiding off.

    Hmm I thought there were more people who dont want to give Dock a lot of pixels at the bottom! :D

    Maybe we have to gove this poll a bit more time ;)

    People who have a multiple Dock hack are also criminally ignored, too. ;)

    Mine has been basically everywhere (including where those hacks that slooksterPSV was suggesting allow you to have it) but it is now comfortably sitting at the bottom - not hidden - on my mini with its 20" screen.
    On my iBook it's at the bottom not hidden as well, but was on the left/hidden for months.

    I just can't stand it at the right as it's always overlapping with something else..

    I also have it on the bottom with some magnification, but I cannot stand full magnification (unless the dock is huge to begin with).

    I find it a bit disorienting to go down towards an icon and suddenly have it become 5x the size.

    I used to have my dock on the left for quite some time, but about 6 months ago, I changed it to the bottom, and I love it there. So much easier! :)

    Bottom, and hidden.
    Doesn't deserve all those pixels to itself.

    Mine is left. With just a little magnification, and small icons. So it doesn't take up too much room.

    If I add more applications, what's going to happen to my dock? will it get smaller and smaller even though the size is set to smallest? or will it extent off the screen? I have:
