Definitely 3D on the bottom, but if I decide to put it on the side I dont think we have much of an option...

To be able to use the 2D dock, you need to open terminal.app (Applications->Utilities) and enter the following 2 commands :

 

defaults write com.apple.dock no-glass -boolean YES

 

and

 

killall Dock

The thing about using 2D on the bottom is that those who have problems with the shadows in the 3D dock won't have to worry about them now. I kinda like the look of the 2D dock.

 

Oh yeah, if you enter those commands to 2D, how do you get 3D back if you end up preferring it over the 2D? thanks

It´s a boolean value, so just change that YES to a NO.

I hate the look of the 3D dock! At first, it looked cool, but now it's just too much... Icon-reflection, windows-reflection, silly S-curve-reflection, dumb-perspective-thing....

IT'S TOO F***ING MUCH!

The 2D dock is soo much nicer!

Huh, I didn't know there was an option, thanks!

Stupid Apple TBH, why not a simple checkbox in the prefpane? Naah lets force the 3D look on people.

If I choose 2D on the bottom and later change my mind and want the 3D back, how can I get 3D back?

 

You read the previous posts in this thread.

did anyone notice? the shadows casted by the icons in the 3d dock is now less eye catching and more translucent? if only apple made it to be a very blurred shadow... that would look so much better....

Same way you turned 2D on, but change the "YES" to "NO". :(

 

defaults write com.apple.dock no-glass -boolean NO
