ObjectDock is a dock similar to that in the Aqua GUI. It is distributed by Stardock for Windows 2000, Server 2003, XP, Vista and 7, and comes in Free and Plus versions.

Features[edit]

ObjectDock allows the user to place shortcuts to any program in a "dock." This provides Windows users functionality similar to that of Mac OS X. The program comes in two versions, free, and a paid version offering more features. Both are available at their official website.

ObjectDock can be used as a program launcher, or as a complete taskbar replacement. Its functionality can be enhanced with plugins to provide features such as weather forecasts or news.


Versions[edit]

Version 2.0 added preliminary Vista support, resource-searching, improved drag-and-drop, and new zoom effects. The current version is 2.1 which supports Windows 8.
