    The idea is that Ubuntu dock should not bring in any bugs that might be already in Dash to dock, and/or allow some outside extension break it. If a system extension can be meddled that way, its a risk.

    I have now tried to remove Dash to Dock from ~/.local/share/gnome-shell/extension then I can removed it. But reloading a new Dash to Dock from Gnome Extension website and the same thing happens to Dash to Dock again.

    If Ubuntu needs to use a fork of dash2dock, Ubuntu should fork it in such a way, that dash2dock wouldn't trouble Ubuntu dock. You can't have the cake and eat it. Maybe, the developer(s) should look at the Zorin's forking gnome extensions and making them system. The idea there is either use mine, or go away. Of course, Ubuntu would take that stand, as it'd alienate users.

    Users know, Gnome has extensions, and the users love freedom. So, Ubuntu is sort of up against the wall with Gnome coming in. Giving an alternative, saying either use Ubuntu default or install gnome-session package, if you want the "vanilla" experience is asking for trouble.

    Thanks for the link. I noticed this after a few days of experimenting dash-to-dock and related extensions.

    The "Ubuntu Dock" with "Ubuntu Dock Settings" gives the same experience as Dash to Dock.

    From the description of the "Ubuntu Dock Settings"
    "Ubuntu Dock Settings by higgslagrangian
    The purpose of this extension is simply to customize the Ubuntu Dock. It does not provide any extra functionality; when opening the settings, it will simply show the settings offered by Ubuntu Dock itself."

    If there is an app, Ubuntu Dock Settings outside Ubuntu, then what the use of a system extension called Ubuntu Dock? Is it just to mimic Unity Launcher?
    There is also a "Disable Ubuntu Dock" too, even before 17.10 is officially released. There is also another older extension, created around 2016, which would also disable Ubuntu Dock. Dash to Dock would also disable Ubuntu Dock with few up and down installs. Ubuntu Dock would show that its enabled, but won't be shown and that without Dash to Dock.

    The Ubuntu Dock Settings extension only enables available settings in Ubuntu Dock, that isn't enabled as standard. You need Ubuntu Dock to be able to use Ubuntu Dock settings.

    Ubuntu Dock Settings extension created by someone outside Ubuntu, meaning Ubuntu Dock, which is a system extension, is already compromised. Only 2 such extensions at the moment and one quite old one, that can compromise the system extension. A system default app is a system default app, should not be that easily played around by anyone. All these 6 years, Unity's top panel could not be compromised, even Ubuntu Tweak couldn't, or later Unity Tweak couldn't, or was not allowed to.

    This system extension, Ubuntu Dock can be easily kicked out. That's not good for the distro called Ubuntu, but maybe good enough for users. Ubuntu must be Ubuntu, and if it has to mimic Unity, then it must have a launcher, which is completely Ubuntu, a fork or not a fork, and cannot be compromised. Even, before the Ubuntu 17.10 is released, its flagship launcher is broken into.

    If you look at #37, you'd see that Ubuntu Dock is not showing, even with all the Ubuntu Dock files are intact. And, I am not a coder. I also have Unity Greeter, which most people said won't work with Gnome.
