View Full Version : [all variants] witch dock to use??

June 18th, 2008, 02:07 AM
There are lots of OS X like docks now for me the better looking ones ate AWN, Kiba-dock and Cairo-dock.

Witch one do you recommend?
What are the main differences?
What makes you chose one and not the other?

btw: all this docks seam to be more Gnome oriented, is there any decent dock more kde4 driven?

I've only used AWN, and that worked fine for me.

I don't know any KDE4 dock, although KoolDock is written with KDE in mind:

Hope this helps you out

the only one I can recommend you is Cairo-Dock ;-)
it will be released in its 1.6.0 version this week, and it just rocks.

Awn is the nicest but can be resource hungry. Cairo is almost as good but doesn't do all the nice animations that awn does.

If you have good hardware awn. If not cairo.
