I'm glad to see that our Leopard Dock got a new look.
Let's recall what our old Tiger Dock looks like..
And if we contrast it with our brand new 3D Leopard Dock..
Mostly Mac users love the 3D Dock mode, but some of them do not. Fortunately in Leopard, you can transform your Dock back into 2D-looking Dock. There are 2 ways to do that, changing Dock position or using Terminal to force Dock to change.
Since it's not suitable to put 3D Dock on the left side or right side of your screen and Leopard knows that, your Dock will be transformed into 2D-looking Dock whenever it's put on the edge of the screen.
However, still, some people don't like to position their Dock on the edge of the screen. In that case, the second way should work well.
When I browsed through insidemacgames forum, I spotted these command lines.
What will actually those command lines change?
defaults write com.apple.dock no-glass -boolean YES
defaults write com.apple.dock no-glass -boolean NO
