Rocketdock vs object dock

Hello all, and thanks for a great resource of knowledge !

Now I have windows 7 ultimate x64 and I love it, but I would like to
use either rocketdock or objectdock .. but while browsing around in the forum
it feels like I get mixed messages ...

Does any of them work in win 7 x64 edition ?

Welcome to the forums.
Personally I use rocket dock. It works great with x64.
Everyone is going to have a bias opinion, its more or less going to come up to you trying both out and seeing which one you like more XD

Windows 10 Pro x64 x3, Ubuntu

Both work on x64 but neither are actually supported by the developers on the 64 bit platform

Rocketdock works for me on my Win 7 x64 Ultimate installation, with one minor oddity. Twice in the last month Rocketdock has hung up during shutdown. No big deal really, just a small annoyance.

I really like it...

Win7 64bit Ultimate

I use rocket dock works great for me with no issues so far.

I actually prefer rocket dock over other docks because it functions better for general use. Object has some features I like but it just isn't as good for average every day use for me. Though object makes a great dock for cramming all your game icons on if you just want an out of the way yet easily accessible place for game icons.

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.
