Rocket Dock still has that "Show Desktop" bug.

I used Rocket Dock for a while. But if you have many shortcuts, it gets pretty confusing. I have now changed to using toolbars. Advantage is that you can have several (e.g. one for system programs, one for application programs, one for folders, etc.). I find that approach a lot easier to work with.

I dont use any docks as such.... The new Windows 7 taskbar is all i need to pin all the items i use..

If u can just use the taskbar,the less running the better on resources and performance.I use both rocketdock,objectdock and nexus(not all at once obviously)...When i do a new install it just depends on what mood i'm in.So i'm in the same boat,there are good things about both programs.For looks though,i would say objectdock myself.Use Moo system monitor (free) to find out which takes up most resources etc.(excellent prog for this,but doesn't look too brill.I have to put transparency down to 60% to make it look half decent)

I use Object dock Plus and it works great (uses only 5mb Ram.)

I'm a RocketDock man myself. Tried ObjectDock and that works fine but prefer RD's look. Alternatively, as Dinesh pointed out, the Windows 7 taskbar isn't bad either...

Maybe we should get some of our guys around here to make a new dock. I can see it now "7 Dock" that would be pretty cool.

Not a bad idea, cc.

For those wondering about nexus, see WinStep: Desktop Themes and Customizing Windows!

I would already be happy if they made the AppLauncher to work properly in W7.

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.
