    Hi guys, got my first mac in October after having windows all my life.
    Enjoying it so far except i found the transparency to be too much. Not sure why Ive loves this so much.
    Anyway I reduced transparency and the dock became opaque. I used cdock to get it transparent again as i think this looks better.

    When installing cdock i had to use terminal to disable system integrity protection.. would this make me vulnerable to viruses or anything? i reenabled it just now after cdock and installed.

    System Integrity Protection is mostly damage mitigation in case you do contract malware. It is not currently known how effective it is or will be, bar that it should protect the core system when something does happen. That being said, there is probably no reason to keep it turned off after installing cDock. It is possible to turn of specific parts of the protection only, but I don't know what cDock specifically needs. If it only needs to install something then I guess that it is just the write access to the system directories.
