    He is saying what he would like to have, not what exists now.

    The dock should just have a line about the four apps or even through the apps. Would be more minimal and then the background can show through better.

    As much as I like the Beta 2 dock, I've always wanted the Mountain Lion dock. It has that frosty look to it, and I think it would look quite nice on the OS.

    Mountain Lion Dock would look like crap on iOS 7 IMO...Someone should create a Photoshop of it.

    I like the dock. I think if it was more transparent, it would look weird. All speculation though, I would have to see it first hand.

    I would love the Mountain Lion dock, with say 6 or 8 wide limit and scrolling across. That wont happen, so I'll just ask for the current one with way less translucence to it as the current design looks horrid

    That looks really nice, and, as usual, the re-imagined icons look way better than the ones Apple came up with.

    Yeah, they seem even more professional than the ones in iOS 6 and lower

    Whoever made this should work for Apple to get rid of the current childish design

    Maybe it is just me, but I don't see what the big deal is about the dock. It has no added or subtracted functional value when the UI is changed there. I understand the concern around the style changes for buttons and navigation elements, but not for static background images that you don't really interact with.

    Part of the problem is that the current "frosted glass" dock can take on an ugly color, depending on your wallpaper. I had to quit using my favorite wallpaper because it made the dock an ugly salmon color:

    Although I see that the dock takes on the properties of the wallpaper underneath it, I don't mind it personally.

    I am used to it so far.

    ----------

    What is intense to me is when I double-tap the home button, as in previous iOS'es and get that search-dock-thing? I'm a bit taken aback to see all my apps' info open, while scrolling horizontally.

    It is different and I can see why it was done for sure, but it is still something I am still getting used to.

    I have to agree, the Frosted Glass looks nice with MOST wallpapers, I don't see how the OS X dock could possibly add to it. The previous glass dock doesn't interfere too much with the wallpaper, but an all metal OS X dock you can't even see your wallpaper beneath it. At least with iOS 7 you see the wallpaper underneath and it has some type of depth. Hence why I stand by what I say (for now) that the OS X dock should stay in OS X. I even wanted the Glass one back BTW.
