149. Leopard. It’s The Little Things.

dock.jpgI’m not one of those crazy Mac geeks, who worships Steve Jobs or still has a Newton; but I really am enjoying my new MacBook Pro and it’s Leopard OS. I could go on and on about a lot of important aspects to the system and performance and whatever. But the best thing – to me - is one of the smallest. The stacks feature in the dock allows you to have quick access to a folder of files – and is a convenient little design no doubt. But when applied to software alias links you can really clean up your dock in a way that is clean and eye pleasing. It allows me to show only the rainbow hued icons of Adobe’s CS suite in the main dock and create a stack of all the other (not-so-nice) icons in a separate folder. Will this lend to more productivity? No. Does it deserve it’s own blog entry? Not really. But for an obsessive compulsive, uber-minimalist, type-A art director-designer personality – it is very pleasing. Almost peaceful. Am I the only one that feels this way?

Ahhhhh. So simple.

And when needed, I can just jump to all those web-2.0, over-designed icons of microsoft and other companies. And then they go away. When you sit on a computer for 60 hours a week - this kind of stuff is important. (Though I probably need help, eh?) Wallpaper via Madolux.
