March 5th, 2009, 02:08 PM
So i'be been using Avant Window Navigator now for some time and iam wondering if there any other doc look alike bar program out there, there are some parts of AWN that gets on my nerves :S, it feels kinda slow when updating dunno if thats due to my computer or not but still, also there real doc bar looks much better then this one dunno why they changed it so much.

So i there another other program that delivers this feature out there for a ubuntu 8.10 user?

There are also kiba dock and cairo dock though I am not a user of either so not sure what they are like in comparison to AWN.

Ive tried awn many times but it always had strange glitches and behavior that didnt make it much usable...

But, i just discovered gnome-do with docky and its very good.
