Stardock / Object Dock ?

I'm just about to download this and try it in Windows 7, just wondering if any one is using Object Dock freeware ?

As with most dock applications, some of the functionality is missing under Windows 7. Stardock say they have a new version in the pipeline, but no release date yet.

One of the things that doesn't work with any dock I've tried under Windows 7, is right click functionality. If, for example, you try to run 'manage' from the right click menu on 'My Computer', assuming you have that as a dock item, gives what you can see in the screen shot.

So far I've tried:

RKlauncher
RocketDock
ObjectDock
Nexus
YZDock
XWindows Dock

Is there a FREE dock software that supports Tabbed Docks ?

If I remember correctly, objectDock has a tabbed interface you can choose. There's also sTabLauncher which is quite cool.

If you're into Yahoo Widgets you can also try Tab Launcher - Yahoo! Widgets.

There are others...

Object Dock question
I gather that several people here are using Object Dock. I tried it too and I like it, but is there a shortcut to bring it up front when it's hidden behind other programs? It shouldn't be on top all the time but now I have to minimize all windows to get access to it which isn't too handy.
