Filed under
Software

Ever wanted a linux dock that did parabolic zoom (the fisheye effect that mac’s have)? Ever wanted a dock that did was more stable then rm? Ever wanted a dock that actually made sense? Ever want a dock that actually knew what to populate it with? Well the waits out with newest release of gnome-do and docky!

What is docky? Docky is a revolution in docks, its the new version of gnome-do! Basically its a great dock that does everything AWN should of been able to do a long time ago. Its pretty, its stable and its intuitive, and if that wasn’t enough its an interface to gnome-do. So docky knows what apps you use the most and automagically fills the bar with them. Finally did I mention that its absolutely gorgeous? It has lovely smooth animations and reminds me what an application should feel like. But enough talk, screenshots!
