Dock

The launch bar, or Dock, spread across the bottom of the screen is the first thing most people notice when introduced to Mac OS X. The Dock (Figure 8.2) is roughly equivalent to the Start menu in Microsoft Windows. It shows all the applications you are currently running (with triangles under their icons) as well as those whose icons you have dropped onto the Dock for easy access. A single click on the icon starts the application; its icon will bounce as the program starts.

Figure 8.2. The Dock is the first thing most people notice when introduced to Mac OS X. It gives users easy access to their most-used applications and also is kind of cute.
