    Is there any way to get the Tiger dock in 10.5.x or at least a fair approximation?

    I can't stand the 3D dock, and all of the 2D options I can find (including the default) are all dark. Which I am not fond of. Most of them blend into dark wallpapers, unless they have a border which looks tacky, IMHO.

    Anyway, I just really always preferred the dock in 10.4. It's not a big deal, really, I was just wondering if it was possible.

    Thanks.

    1. Open Terminal. (Inside applications/utilities).
    2. Copy and paste this into terminal and press return:
    defaults write com.apple.dock no-glass -boolean YES
    Type this and press return:
    killall Dock
    3. Quit terminal and enjoy your old 10.4 dock!

    Thanks, but I mean the actual, frosted-white dock from Tiger. I am aware of the alternative in Leopard using the Terminal command.

    I yearned for a better dock as well, and ended up using Mirage to make the dock completely clear. Really happy with the 'clean' look.

    The Dock in leopard has literally been reprogramed. It's more than cosmetics.
