My workplace is looking to migrate to Mac across the board. I have been using Windows since v3.1, and while I am open-minded about the transition, I have my gripes. The main one being that I love the Windows 7 taskbar. I have mine set to double-height with small icons and the taskbar icons "don't combine". I prefer the visual overview of knowing what applications are open versus the OS X's single icon per application setup (which I, personally, believe is geared more towards novice users, similar to the default Windows 7 taskbar). My question: To what degree can the Mac OS X Dock be customized to mimic the appearance of the Windows 7 taskbar, either natively or using third-party software? I am intentionally keeping this short and to the point. Please no bashing and off-topic based on assumptions.
