Depends on Screen Resolution
Authored by: bedouin on Mar 27, '06 10:09:32PM

On my 12" PB I keep it on the bottom and invisible, because at 1024x768 screen real estate is limited. On my dual screen PowerMac (1280x1024 and 1024x768) it is at the bottom and always visible.

So if I were forced to vote, I guess I'd go with bottom and always visible, since it's what I prefer at higher resolutions. I did have a period of about two years where I kept it to the left side and always visible on my PowerMac though. This setup was occasionally annoying with some apps that didn't like to respect that though, and would launch in the way of the dock (I think Inspiration liked to do this if I remember correctly, and some Classic apps violated this as well).

A more interesting poll might examine how people utilize dual displays. I like to keep things like Mail, Adium, and Stickies on one display, with browsers and other 'active' apps on the primary display.
