I saw this on another forum and just thought it would be fun and interesting to see who has the most items running in there dock at all times, not what's on your dock but programs that don't quit by keep running for faster access.

Here's mine:

Finder (of course)
Mail
iTunes (just stared doing this because the launch time has become slow lately for some reason.)

Mine's is a short one, but I know there are many who keep a lot of stuff running in their dock.

Boring really... Unless your happy with Terminal functions... Razz

Aqua

It seems like I have MTR and HandBrake open all the time, but I don't normally keep them running. I just rip and close, rip and close, rip and close...
