    I thought about what might happen, so I tried it. Set my screen to 640 x 480, and just started putting tons of documents from a folder into the dock. I don't know how many I put in there, but the folder has 900 documents and I made it pretty far.

    Eventually, I got to this point:

    Adding one more document to that resulted in this:

    Picture 2.jpg

    Everything disappears... and check out those active triangles.

    Crazy!

    That's pretty cool, I've always wondered about that :)

    Heh! I'd love to see an animation if you turn your (Dock)magnification up full and run your cursor across the Dock! You could even do a funky animated short like that! ;)

    Apparently the smallest you can get each icon is 1 x 1 pixel.

    Well, it initially looks like this:

    Picture-1.jpg

    However, I think I have discovered a minor, probably unknown bug, as moving the mouse down the line results in this:

    Picture-2.jpg

    Basically the icons never go away. And moving it around a lot results in this:

    Picture-3.jpg

    And it stays that way until I log out move the mouse to the end or off the dock... floating above any other windows.
