    Here I am, after reinstalling Snow Leopard and am wondering what I need on my dock. I'm seeing this revamp as a sort of spring cleaning.

    Before the reinstall I had the downloads folder and also my dropbox folder, same as now...though I also used to have a "China" folder and a "work" folder, considering these both were/are important projects of mine that I attend to on a daily basis.

    Nevertheless, am wondering what members of the community have on the right side of the dock. :apple::apple::apple::p

    Applications Folder, Downloads Folders and the Trash Can

    Will be removing the applications folder when Lion is released because of LaunchPad.

    A fan stack for my downloads folder, a grid stack for my most frequently used applications, a list stack for my applications folder, and a list stack for my home folder.

    I don't have any indicators in my dock because I don't have any apps in it other than open ones, I just use my frequent apps stack to open them. It's actually much faster and easier to open and switch between apps this way IMO.

    I left it as is: Apps, Documents, Downloads and Trashcan.

    The Apps are in a list, and both the documents and downloads in a grid, in case you're making a study. :)

    From left to right: Dropbox, Applications, Documents, Downloads, Trash. I don't often use the Applications folder unless I want to play a game but am not sure which one, then it's nice for looking around.

    .......how does yours look so cool?
    ......what have you done?

    are they just free floating on your desktop??
    what have I missed?

    to be honest Im not sure I know what grid stacks and list stacks are......
    Would you happen to have a link to a how to in this department?
    (I thought I was cool cause I can change icons......)

    I changed the icons with CandyBar and the "Flurry" icon packages, got rid of the dock graphics by making the dock 2D and using this app (I think), aligned the dock to the right side using this terminal command, and the song data at the left is Ecoute.
