    rather than using loads of task bars, can someone suggest a good dock to use - free if poss, being i'll, having no job, or money both sucks ass and limits what you can have :(

    RocketDock is great, free and low on your computer's memory! :) Plus, it's highly customizable.

    Check it out here;

    I wanted it thinner with the samewidth but size will do, I also hit autohide which is nice

    A side suggestion for those who are interested.

    If you enable the "desktop" toolbar on your taskbar and have a single folder setup on any drive on your system, you can add shortcuts as needed and not have to run an additional application. I used to run a dock all the time but the desktop toolbar is much faster for me.

    I have used every dock out there. I like rocketdock, RK Launcher and Objectdock about the same. What I would love to see and I think it is illegal but some developers have attempted this with limited success is a the genie effect of OS X

    Carpo,

    Nope, I haven't noticed anything like that. It works with no problems here.

    I've been using ObjectDock for awhile and have no complaints.
    Does anyone think RocketDock is better for any reason?
