The Future Of Docky

Filed under
Software
Interviews

Since the news of Do and Docky's mutual decision to split to better serve users of both apps, a lot of readers have been left confused, worried and annoyed.

To clear things up, get some background on the decision to split and get some juicy insights on the future of Docky, I spoke to Docky developer and all-round nice guy Jason Smith.

Jason talks about the reasons behind the "split", discusses docklets and themes, why Docky will be in Gnome-Do for a bit longer yet, Gnome-Shell’s impact and even hints at a release date for the new standalone Docky!

Can you explain to those left confused by the decision to split just why Docky has decided to become it's own separate application and no longer be part of Gnome-Do?

Many distros come with a wide assortment of feature-rich applications, and that's great for power users who need those apps. But older machines can struggle to cope with those demanding distros. Peppermint solves the problem by offering a carefully curated suite of web apps that perform tasks traditionally handled by native apps. It's an approach that will be familiar to any Chromebook users reading this article. Read more
