Leopard: Goodbye Shelf

Sunday, October 28, 2007 06:22 PM

When reading about Leopard, I saw the new dock/shelf. I hate it. It is a nasty resemblance to that SunOS Looking Glass project from like 5 years ago. Apple: This isn't 2001, Sun wants their wannabe desktop manager back! Thanks to my feeds I found a guy here that blogged about a hack to make the shelf go away. I even tried it at the Apple Store, it worked perfectly. I really was not going to buy Leopard, thanks to this hack I'm good to go.Here's the hack...open a terminal and type the following.....

$ defaults write com.apple.dock no-glass -boolean YES
$ killall Dock

Here's a picture of what it looks like...

Update:Check out an official article about this hack.
