Totally agree on the dock, one of my first thoughts was that it looked hideous, why anyone would think that a solid colour bar taking up 1 5th of the screen would be a good idea I will never understand. Other things I really dont like so far:
- Keyboard still doesnt swich letters from upper to lower case, and the shift icon is now less obvious
- Awful app icons. Why are they so bright? Why does safari have a white border? It looks like a junior designer did them and icons from 3rd party apps look better on the new design
- Skinny wirery icons, just looks awful. By that i mean the icons on toolbars, they just look so week and dont stand out that im loosing them even though there in the same place
- notes now looks like the most basic note taking app. It may have always been basic, but the old design gave it style. Now it just looks something that was made in a couple hours.
A lot of other stuff I do like, but Apple stuff is usually polished and perfected. The dock and app icons are hard to get passed, its like a junior guy did it and nobody cared enough to fix them.
