3.1. The Dock

Most operating systems maintain two different lists of programs. One of them-like the Start menu (Windows) or the Launcher (Mac OS 9)-lists unopened programs until you need them. The other list-like the taskbar (Windows) or the Application menu (Mac OS 9)-keeps track of which programs are open at the moment, so that you can easily switch among them.

In Mac OS X, Apple combined both functions into a single strip of icons called the Dock.
