    I was just being a dork and laughing at the chaos that is my iMac's open applications.

    You see I try to only open a few apps at a time (I'm a Graphic Designer) so that might be photoshop and illustrator, but a few distractions later and suddenly I've got 15 apps running and I need a shovel to get back to my desktop. :)

    As of this posting I have all of these open:

    Illustrator, Photoshop, Dreamweaver, Cyberduck, Safari, Firefox, Acrobat, Distiller, Suitcase, Excel, Mail, Preview, Stuffit, Address Book, and Bluetooth

    So right NOW, what do you have open on your dock? Whose got the most?

    Mail.app
    Safari
    Adium
    iTunes
    VMWare Fusion (running XP Pro)
    Transmission

    and the best part is, my computer performed like a champ!

    One of these days I need to kill like 1/2 the icons in my dock though.. it's just way out of hand

    At work on Windows Vista: Pidgin, Thunderbird, Perforce, Firefox, and RealFlight. Most of the time I also have Visual Studio and Word open as well.

    I'll post from home on my MBP later.
