    How many do you guys have?

    I have 19 (counting the trash can), but only use about 6 or 7 on a regular basis.

    23 items in total, including Finder and Trash. I like to keep my dock small and short, so I put all my Adobe apps in a stack. Great feature, by the way. :)

    Finder, 4 stacks, trash. I prefer to launch my apps via Spotlight.

    Not much.

    Top to bottom:

    Finder
    Adium
    Mail
    Webkit
    iTunes
    Canon's EOS Utility (tethered shooting FTW)
    Carbon Copy Cloner
    -
    Documents Stack
    Downloads Stack
    Trash


    ...and CCC is only open to do a backup.


    I use Quicksilver to do most app launching and quite a bit of Finder stuff too. It's far more powerful than most give it credit for.

    Is there an easy way to group Applications into a stack?
    I like having my Adobe Apps on teh dock, but things like GarageBand/iMovie/iDVD and such or Office apps are things I would like to stack into Media Apps and Office Apps.

    Thanks in advance

    18 with the Trash and Finder on 15 inch MacBook Pro

    I like the dock bigger with less things on it. But when I get a 24 inch iMac it'll probably be a lot more.

    How many of those do you use on a regular basis? I can't imagine how many apps you have open at once.

    Not many. I don't have more than two or three open at the same time; I was surprised myself that I had so many.

    EDIT: I've just had a purge and got it down to a more manageable 33, with a possibility of a few more going.

    34 on my new MacBook, including Finder, System Preferences, Downloads, Applications, and Documents Stacks, as well as Trash.

    I have probably 45 on my iMac.

    16 plus the trash. I like to keep in minimal - spotlight finds everything I launch occasionally.
