Dock on the right...
Authored by: tyip on Mar 16, '06 09:06:16PM

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.
