The best idea is to put an alert/caution/note badge on the app's icon, like in the standard alert/caution/note dialogs. Whether that badge should be pulsating is open to debate. Or maybe user preference.
From what I have heard, the icon of the App jumps somehow from left to right or something to draw attention in 10.1Originally posted by slur
Again, I like the idea of the Dock icon being used to notify you when you hear a system beep--in theory. Maybe it could pulse slowly (like the 'sleep' light), or jiggle quickly every so often, or take your pick from a list in the preferences.
Why do you keep System Prefs in the dock? It's right under the Apple Menu.The only two "apps" I keep in the app side at all times is the finder (duh) and sysprefs.
Or Snard? Both of them sit in yer Dock and let you directly access the SysPref pane that you want. Snard has the added advantage of an Application launcher, and it lets you choose your own Dock icon.Originally posted by natis
I dunno. For some reason, I just like having the sysprefs there. When I first installed OS X, I was constantly rebooting into OS 9, so I guess I put it there for quicker access to change the startup disk and haven't touched it then.

So, are you saying that it IS possible for me to set up my new iMac straight out of the box with a messagebox every time i turn it on that gives me to option of booting into 9.2 or OSX? Thanks anywayOriginally posted by tismey
And as for being able to boot into X or 9.1, that's standard - you need to have 9.1 on there to use Classic.
