3.1. The Dock

As noted briefly in Chapter 1, the Dock is a launcher (like the Windows Start menu) and a "what's open" listing (like the Windows taskbar) rolled into one. Only a tiny triangle beneath a program's icon tells you that it's open.

Apple starts the Dock off with a few icons it thinks you'll enjoy: QuickTime Player, iTunes, iChat, and so on. But using your Mac without putting your own favorite icons on the Dock is like buying an expensive suit and turning down the free alteration service. At the first opportunity, you should make the Dock your own.
