Dock on the right...
Authored by: tommyw on Mar 16, '06 01:14:54PM

Of course... where God intended it to be.

It's interesting that over 50% have it on the bottom in the poll.

But the comments are overwhelmingly people who have it on the right. It could simply be that the people who have thought about it, put it on the right ;o)

I don't have disk icons on my desktop. Having it on the right doesn't really work with that and you can always have them in the dock anyway.

The left interferes with work windows far too much. Ditto the bottom, for laptop owning me, it impacts far too much on the height of windows. i'd dare say a taller monitor would make the bottom more attractive alright, but now it's a physical habit of mine, I could never see me changing my habits.

But increasingly, Quicksilver is doing just that. And the dock is becoming a much less visited place.

So it's hidden.

And it only comes out when I'm not near the keyboard and my hand is already on the trackball.

I think most people have it on the bottom just because it's the default and people either don't know or don't bother to change it.

I have it at the right flush bottom so that the Trash is at the correct place. It's hidden on my two laptops at home. At work where I have a huge monitor, it's in the same location but it's visible.

I think the right side is least intrusive as most windows don't open all the way to the right, and I very rarely maximize windows.

me too. right bottom.

just seemed logical since i had more horizontal than vertical screen space and to pin the trash in the lower right corner.

God intended it to be on the bottom... otherwise it would come on the right as default!

Actually on the right would get in the way of various pallets in programs like Photoshop and Illustrator, and most software knows not to cover the Dock on the bottom.
