Leopard side dock is unbelievable

Several weeks ago, I wrote a short post about the 3D look of Leopard’s dock in which I said

God knows what the 3D Dock will look like when it’s positioned along the left or right edge of the screen; the Apple previews I’ve seen show it only along the bottom.

God has apparently spilled the beans to the folks at Rogue Amoeba, and they’ve decided to share their newfound knowledge with the rest of us. Fasten your seatbelts, here it is.

This is just so wrong I can’t imagine Apple letting it out, even in a beta. Paul at RA has overcome his initial shock and posted a good set of criticisms. I’m still dumbstruck.

Thanks, I guess, to TUAW for posting a link to RA’s discovery.
