Inspired by Jon Gordon’s report yesterday about the Minimal Mac blog, I’ve cleared the decks and pared my Macbook Pro desktop down to the essentials. The dock has just my most used applications with some overflow in a stack to the right. XMenu is installed to get to the rest of my apps without digging through Finder. I’ve reduced the menu bar to the bare bones. Along the way I discovered a great script called Helvetireader and built a site specific browser in Fluid to create a very focused interface for Google Reader.

Yes, I’ve gone minimal.
