Saw this on digg, Much nicer in my opinion, takes out the "shoosh line" in the dock and makes it a bit darker, I also darkened the frontline image and i think the dock looks 10X better

here are the files & info if anyone cares...

This is indeed awesome. What I would like to see is a fully re-realized dock using the provided images. Something not so, dock-ish mind you, maybe something with lemons, or even monkeys!

But really... What about replacing the images with other textures and whatnot?

It looks like they took it down? I went to the parent site, and the page informed me, "Weee."

I've put together a similar sort of thing myself, except it's black, and also allows you to change the reflectivity of the dock. I've also changed the running-applications indicators to make them more noticeable.

Dark, Fully Reflective:


Semi-Glossy (reflections still there, but much subtler):
