GLX-Dock 2.2 Enters Beta With Greater Usefulness
Phoronix: GLX-Dock 2.2 Enters Beta With Greater Usefulness
The first beta release of GLX-Dock 2.2 is now available for those looking to add a Mac OS X-like dock to their Linux desktop. The GLX-Dock 2.2 release is focusing upon improving four core areas of this open-source application dock: being unobtrusive yet useful and simple while also introducing a new panel view...
I obviously haven't tried a recent version.
It's certainly excellent it is more frugal, esp on netbooks.

I think my main point (I had a point, I think...) stands with regards to Docks: they don't really solve any problems efficiently. They combine a main menu with window list, but in doing so make for a long trek to find things if you actually move everything from the menu to the Dock (complete replacement).
However, if cairo-dock has developed a radical new paradigm that fixes these problems I would be willing to admit I'm wrong.
