Elegant, powerful, clean dock

https://launchpad.net/docky
Description:

A full fledged dock application that makes opening common applications and managing windows easier and quicker. docky is fully integrated into the gnome desktop and features a no nonsense approach to configuration and usage. it just works.

docky provides an application launcher, running application management, and various "docklets" including a cpu monitor, weather report and clock. it is similar to other docks such as awn and cairo-dock.

applications can integrate with docky to add extra items to their context menus or modify their icons to display more information. this package includes integration helpers for a number of applications, including banshee, rhythmbox, deluge, tomboy and zeitgeist.

docky is derived from the gnome do "docky" interface.

2 [REVISED: TOO MANY CRASHES. TIRED OF MANUALLY RELAUNCHING IT.] While nice, glitchy with VMs running, not straight forward, and prone to crashes.

4 I've used docky for years and generally love it, but since I installed 17.3 "Rosa" 64b it constantly crashes. PLEASE FIX!

3 It constantly disappears. I installed this to make it easier for my mother to find her favority programs but this defeats the purpose when it has to be manually restarted to get it to work. Disappointed.

3 Easy to use and good looking: it’s true that “it just works”. But several docklets don’t, and docky isn’t well integrated with UPower — that’s why it vanishes when the laptop is disconnected from AC supply (see http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=42&t=210079), and why you won’t get any battery readings, even with the latest PPA.

5 Over the years I have tried all of the dock applications, docky is what I always come back to.It is the best made. I do wish that Google would write their code right so that Chrome can be easily added like all other applications. It's unfortunate that there has to be a desktop shortcut in place to have Chrome added to docky.

5 Docky has proven to be a lot better than Cairo-Dock, as well as having made a lot better the configuration and customization of it. It is simple, fast, elegand and it works really well out-of-the-box. So, IMHO, it beats Cairo-Dock even though it is a rather young project and still has a long way to go. Anyway, it is amazing and it is absolutely recommended.

4 If you want your Linux distro to look like Mac OS X, you should download this. Some might love this, some might hate this. I personally like it with Gnome 3. If you need just a simple dock, download this. If you don't want dock, download this. It's simple as Docky. :)

4 While docks aren't normally my choice interface, this one works nicely and simply. No need to install compiz under Xfce or GNOME, just enable compositing! Only downsides: some of the features don't seem to start for me (like the battery monitor) and if you're using multiple desktop environments, but want it to start only on one of those, you have to manually start it. (Or else make some sort of script only on that desktop, I guess.)

5 This is a biased review as I haven't tried the other dock programs, though after installing this one I didn't need to. It just works, not too fancy but has enough features for the average user. It's smooth as well, not a resource hog. Thumbs up.

5 Awesome dock! For my needs, Docky is superior to both AWN and Cairo. You can't customize every single detail, but there are certainly enough features available to play around a little. The dock gives a very elegant feel from the start and the only downside I've encountered thus far is that the feature that is supposed to show the Deluge transfer speed in the dock isn't working.
