I see your point about a job in programming but that doesn't mean you can't adjust the aesthetics to your liking at home, does it?[/QUOTE] Anyone that moves their taskbar to the top of the screen isn't doing it because they prefer it there, they're doing it so people ask why their taskbar isn't at the bottom.

  • [QUOTE=Tangara;29982657]No, it's called consistency: *pretty pictures*[/QUOTE] Which is great and all, I mean I love consistency, but the Windows task bar performs a task more akin to what the dock does in OS X so really it makes no sense whatsoever to have it up the top. You see the dock and windows task bar are both used to launch program. The top bar on OS X works pretty much the same way as the menu bar on most windows apps with the exception of the Apple menu and menu bar icons. Oh also, content: [img]http://cl.ly/6x84/Screen_shot_2011-05-22_at_7.19.56_PM.png[/img] I know my font is kinda on the large side but I have pretty poor vision. Also I find it kind of a pain to use dark schemes when I'm in a brightly lit room so in those cases it looks like this: [img]http://cl.ly/6xkR/Screen_shot_2011-05-22_at_7.22.35_PM.png[/img] Oh also I use a font called Meslo which is a slight modification of Menlo that allows the user to pick from three different line heights. Mainly I just like to have my code more spaced out so I'm using the medium height variant here.

  • [QUOTE=Tangara;29982879]spotlight[/QUOTE] Yeah but I'm assuming that most developers on OS X use something like Alfred/Quicksilver/Launchbar for searching.

  • [QUOTE=Tangara;29982879]spotlight[/QUOTE] Sorry but it's not consistent. It's the Windows taskbar, it goes at the bottom. It's consistent for it to be at the bottom.
  • I've changed my terminal theme and GVim seems to really mess up when I use it in the editor, so it's vim for me now. Although, I'm liking the look a lot better. [img]http://i920.photobucket.com/albums/ad43/Portal2121/ide.png[/img]

Also, it's not like you use the OS X bar to open the main application menu, to directly start applications and to switch them... It would be more consistent to move your Dock to the top of the screen, if that's even possible.

It's not solely for consistency either, it's also personal preference. I've had my taskbar on top for years.
  • It's poor design to eat even more of the already more limited vertical space with a horizontal task bar. Few programs can effectively utilize all of the horizontal space of a modern monitor so I just arrange things in narrower columns myself.

Might be switching to this over consolas, assuming it doesn't destroy my eyes over time (It's so nice, but it's so tiny!) :v:

  • This is my real one. [img]http://img807.imageshack.us/img807/7076/unledet.png[/img] Only just installed this theme as i used the default theme before but after seeing your dark themes i realised is really is easier to read (at night which is when the coders come out to play)
  • [QUOTE=garry;29983131]Sorry but it's not consistent. It's the Windows taskbar, it goes at the bottom. It's consistent for it to be at the bottom.[/QUOTE] Just because the default placement is at the bottom does not mean that's where it belongs, if it did Microsoft wouldn't have made it possible for you to move it to the sides or top of the screen. You might also want to think of the meaning of the term "personal preference" as well.
