    Default Congratulations...

    You've cloned MacOS X toolbar.

    Maybe just spend the $29.95 and buy a copy of MacOS X instead?

    Done and Done! Gonna drop another $2k when the 2012 iMacs are released.

    In all of my VMs (running ubuntu on fusion), I immediately install CCSM and Cairo dock. I then set the Unity launcher plugin to hide. Done. If I ever need to bring up the unity launcher, all I have to do is hit the apple key, not that I should ever have to. This leaves me with a nice dock and a global menu.

    Default Clutter

    Wonder if perhaps the Clutter toolkit would be good for a dock?
    Any Clutter-powered docks out there?

    The configuration dialog does not follow HIG.

    I would never pay for proprietary software.

    ...but you'll spend your time re-implementing proprietary user interfaces!

    A good design idea is still a good design idea even though it is implemented in proprietary code.
