    Sorry for the mundane question. But i've been wondering where do you guys normally position your dock? Bottom? Right? Left? How does this affect your productivity?

    3D dock or 2D dock? Apparently, a lot of graphic designers prefer to keep their dock either at the left or right side especially when using a MB or MBP since its widescreen, it gives them more vertical screen space.

    I personally prefer the traditional dock at the bottom. Been accustomed to it i guess.

    bottom too, I pretty much stick to the defaults with my own minimal tweaks.
    Locked the dock so I don't accidentally drag things out of it with Deeper.

    Adobe users (InDesign/Illustrator/Photoshop) won't place the dock left or right simply because Toolbox & Control Palettes are usually and efficiently (by default) located on the sides.

    Bottom/magnification on/hiding off.
