Change the Mac OS X Dock from 3D to 2D
The appearance of the new Dock in Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard has caused somewhat of an uproar in the Mac community, some of whom even claim it looks like it belongs in Windows Vista. If you’re totally insulted by the new 3D dock, or if you just prefer the old Dock appearance, it’s very easy to change and you don’t need to be a super Mac genius to figure it out. Simply launch your terminal and type the following commands:
defaults write com.apple.dock no-glass -boolean YES
then you will want to kill the Dock to relaunch it without the glass effect:
to get the reflective 3D Dock back, simply type the following:
defaults write com.apple.dock no-glass -boolean NO
again, you will want to kill the Dock to relaunch it. Enjoy!
