I suppose this is cheating because I use DragThing to give myself, essentially, two docks...

The "real" Dock is on the left, hidden. It contains nothing except the running applications, the Finder (usually not running since I'm a Path Finder junkie) and the Trash. I use it to quickly check if I have 14 apps running to keep memory usage under control, and to look for unread messages etc.

I don't understand people who keep docks on the right. I'm always on the right side of the screen to manipulate window controls. Having a Dock appear every time I went a pixel too far over there would give me nightmares. :)

I also have a DragThing drawer which I've set to look as much like the Dock as possible hidden across the bottom. I use it to launch my most frequently used applications, to give me contextual menu access to current project folders, and to have a quick mousey way to force Path Finder to empty the trash.

I hate icons on the desktop. When both docks are hidden there are no icons on the screen. If I want to see icons I will open a Path Finder window.
