So it’s already new year’s eve, and what a year it’s been. Throughout this year, I have obtained a new laptop that runs OSX, a hackintosh. So I thought I would show you what’s in my dock, and why.
So from left to right, here it is:
- Apple Mail – It is essential for this to always be open, so it might as well be in my dock. I’ve been thinking about moving to Sparrow Mail but I have not yet made the purchase.
- Google Chrome – Chrome, as my main internet browser, is also always open, and for the rare times that it isn’t, it’s handy to have it right there, a single click away. I use chrome because of it’s ease of use, amazing extension range and it’s sleek looks. Ironically, the actual chrome of the browser is very light, which is always a good thing.
- Terminal – I do quite a lot of command line based stuff daily, so it’s always handy to be there when I need it. I’ve also thought of moving to iTerm but I don’t really need all the extra features.
- Twitter For Mac – Twitter is a huge part of my everyday life. Wether I’m using it to put my feet up, or to contact someone about a business proposal, it’s vital to have it there, never far from my fingers.
- Linkinus – Linkinus is my IRC client of choice, allowing me to communicate with the masses rapidly and efficiently. Despite it’s RAM-hogging infamy, it’s beautiful and has just enough features to keep any man happy.
- Sublime Text 2 – Sublime Text is the ultimate code editor for all platforms. It’s sexy chrome and amazing features will keep you blown away for months while still allowing you to work efficiently and produce quality code.
- iTunes – Nothing much to explain here, iTunes is a vital tool when I need to de-stress, giving me access to my favourite music in seconds
- CloudApp – CloudApp is the sharing tool for Mac, unmatched in it’s ease of use and customisability, you will never get bored of the freedom it brings.
- Skype – Skype is another essential communication tool for when the restrictions of text-based chat are too much.
- System Preferences – For when I want to tweak little things about my system, which is usually daily.
Thanks for reading, feel free to comment about what’s in your dock.
