Mac bad usability

This ruins any chance of using motor memory to launch apps with the Dock. You have to look for and interpret icons every time. What are we supposed to do with that empty screen area on either side of the dock anyway?

Exactly!!! Thank you. The dock is completely annoying when I use the mac at work; its only saving grace is its application of infinite height/fitts law. How come people always seem to bring up the "start" button of windows and no one has a problem with as big an issue as this? ;)

Unfortunately SkyOS also inherited this problem.
