Objectdock or Rocketdock? (Info Inside)

Recommended Posts

Yes you may have already guessed what this topic is about... if not then let me fill you in on some info about them...(correct me if i miss or say something wrong)

RocketDock is a smoothly animated, alpha blended application launcher. It provides a nice clean interface to drop shortcuts on for easy access and organization. With each item completely customizable there is no end to what you can add and launch from the dock.

Now with added Taskbar support your minimized windows can appear as icons on the dock. This allows for better productivity and accessibility. Quoted From Rocketdock™ Site

Stardock is not a docking program, what you're thinking of is Objectdock...

Edited: Just changed the 'Star...' to 'Object...'...sorry didnt realise.
