How to fix programs that were improperly added to the Dock
Authored by: scooby509 on Dec 29, '09 03:00:48AM

Part of it's also that Windows users are used to having to click any number of times to find their program; think how the Start menu naturally buries all your stuff behind multiple layers of useless folders.

Apple did come up with a fix for this, as I recall, the Internet-enabled disk images, but app developers didn't believe them that it was necessary.

I can't see any good fix for this. After all, regularly opening a disk image is not an unreasonable thing to want to do from the Dock.

The larger problem is that filesystems are fundamentally broken. Even experienced users wind up spending an inordinate amount of time working around filesystem issues. (Especially problems involving moving files between operating systems, permissions, recursive file operations, etc.)
