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:

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...
