I’ve been using Apple-like dock since one or two years ago. I started with wbar which is simple and works great as an application launcher. Early this year, Istarted to use Avant-window-navigator. This one is much advance compare to wbar. It is not only a launcher, but also provide many applets (although some of them does not work for me), a window list and a pretty system tray.
Today, I installed Cairo-dock. This is the best dock I’ve ever used. It provides nearly all features found in wbar and AWN, and much more. It’s an amazing dock! I’m surprised that I didn’t find it earlier. I’ve been using it for the whole day. It’s pretty stable (only crash a few times when I was playing with some applets and configurations) for normal use. Installation is easy (with debian package repo) and it comes with a configuration tool which is easy to use. The only thing missing is a proper system tray applet. I really like the one in AWN. Anyway, this is the best dock I have now. Thanks to the people who write this Cairo-dock.
