Many of these domination appear as separate posts all over the web, but never in one big list. I have tried to keep the amount of sudo domination down to a minimum as this can easily destroy your system. Especially if you go sudoing every thing. Most of the domination can be reverted by replacing YES with NO and 1 with 0, the opposite. Most of these domination are Leopard compatible and many may not work on Tiger.

To enter copy and past the following code. defaults write com.apple.dock no-glass -boolean YES killall Dock. This process will kill the clock on the dashboard and Kill process in mac via terminal.

One of my favourite hacks that enables you to put a small gradient behind an icon. I think this should be enabled by default. Defaults write com.apple.dock mouse-over-hilte-stack -boolean YES killall Dock. And in this way you can pass on commands and enable or disable the app in the dashboard.

Re: Kill process in mac via terminal

just open the terminal and write this command to know the process number of your application
ps aux | grep "process_name"
the result is like this:
user 4050 0.0 0.0 4545454 344 s000 R+
the process number is 4050
use this command to kill the process
kill 4050
if not killed uses this
kill -kill 4050
This is the same as Linux.
