    Is there a way to remove the dock now that those who have Lion can utilize launch pad?

    Might I suggest you actually have a body to your post? I mean, I understand that you'd like to have a way to remove the dock when using Lion, but a little background helps people with giving you an appropriate solution sometimes. For example, I'm wondering what happens if you just remove everything from the dock, does that work for you? I mean I know it'll still be there, but at least it will be empty.

    I edited my original post to make things more clear.

    I didn't think you could remove Finder

    The dock isn't just an applauncher, but couldn't you just auto hide it?

    i have used this for YEARS.
    it's a little buggy in Lion, but i still swear by it.

    on a 13" macbook, the dock has always bugged me. i use launchpad now to open apps, have my main folder open by default on the sidebar, and am happy...

    if enough people were using this app, the developer might fine-tune it...

    Alternatively, you could just set the Dock delay to a really long time, with this terminal code:
    defaults write com.apple.Dock autohide-delay -float {time} && killall Dock

    Replace {time} with the number of seconds you want it to take before the Dock come up, and set your Dock to autohide.
