Craig Hockenberry of Iconfactory on the Problems with the New Leopard Dock

Interesting blog post by Craig Hockenberry of Iconfactory about the "train wreck" that is the new Leopard Dock.
Previous versions of the Dock used a shelf perspective and did not have dynamically generated shadows, so this was not an issue.

Hundreds of designers have been producing icons for tens of thousands of applications by following the Human Interface Guidelines. Changes to the Dock should respect these guidelines since changing existing artwork is not an option on such a large scale.

The HIG Still Matters Even with Special Effects
