there is not a lot of difference ,i have used objectdock for several years now and never tried rocketdock,

im happy with objectdock so no need to try another that does virtually the same thing, i recommended it because i use it.

RocketDock in my opinion is better. It has a great website that offers thousands of themes, icons and styles as well as a wide variety of options. I've used both RocketDock and ObjectDock and I can tell you that I'd much prefer to use RocketDock.

The thing is though, you already have those application shortcuts on your desktop so a dock would be useless.

not useless ,put the shorts on a dock (whichever one) freeing up the middle of the desktop for wallpapers,
if you dont like then do a system restore to before. create a restore point first.

Yes, you should definitely consider a RAM upgrade. There's not much you can do customisation-wise with 1GB.
