    What are you talking about? My dock never changed (and I'm running a dark version of it).

    I actually like it quite a bit, so speak for yourself.

    I second the "speak for yourself."

    I like it a lot more than Tiger's dock.

    I third it, YOU don't like it, speak only for YOU. I like the reflective dock, it ads a nice freshness to the Leopard UI.

    I don't mind either way. You can always change it to the 2D dock if you really hate it that much. There are also applications to change the dock skin.

    At the end of the day, it's only a dock.

    The 2D dock is even more translucent than the 3D Dock.

    I like the 3D Dock, but I still think Apple should add options to turn off the Translucency and the 3D.

    Could always just put a black background behind it. Then it wouldn't be as obviously translucent. :D

    uhm - the OS X dock has ALWAYS been translucent. Deal with it or use something else (whether operating system or dock application - there's always Adock or Dragthing) :rolleyes:

    Oh, and I agree with the others - speak for yerself: it doesn't need fixing (i.e. it works - it's just that you don't like the look of it- hardly the end of the world), and plenty of folks seem to be happy with it just as it is.

    But don't you know, the whole friggin' universe is about me, and I hate it cause I have nothing better to worry about in life so everybody hates it too, and if they don't they're a lying fanboi! And OSX is totally useless with the @&*%$ dock! AND NOW I'M GONNA GET ALL HYSTERICAL AND TYPE IN ALL CAPS WITH LOTS OF EXCLAMATION POINTS!!!!!!!!!!

    Ahem. I feel better now.

    I found an almost transparent dock with 100% reflection, which would probably send the translucent dock naysayers into paroxysms. It looks pretty cool over a wallpaper of a water scene; it looks like the icons are reflected off the water.
