its a nice piece of software... but I'd like to ask - why do you make another kxdocker/kleardock/whatever osx clone? I like the osX bar, but it whould be much nicer if you guys working on these toolbars whould work on one toolbar instead of 3 or 4... kxdocker is quite mature now, maybe you could work on that instead of your own? not that I dont like it, but its just code duplication... I'm sure there is a lot you can do with kxdocker.

after all, this is what open sourced is about, isnt it??? working together on someting instead of duplication?

Competence is a good thing. I dont like kxdocker... it does not work with Suse9, is undocumented and hard to configure. Two projects give you the possibility to choice ;-)

I disagree with you, and agree with the author of this program. kleardock/smoothdock dropped out of sight. I'm guessing due to the author having other things to do.
The problem with osX-bar that I have to run superKaramba with it. superkaramba eats up a lot of memory on my machine and after all that osX bar doesn't even run nicely.
And as for kxdocker, there's very little to no documentation. there's no feedback from the author and having tried it myself I find it not usable at all on my Duron 1.1 Ghz. (it's too slow with the zooming, etc.)

This is a very good implementation.

Things I've discovered about the application

1. I'm pretty familiar with the ksmoothdock 2.1 code, and I'm not sure why, but the parabolic zoom code doesn't run as smoothly as ksmoothdock 2.1. My machine is a P2 400Mhz box, and despite its age, ksmoothdock has always ran very smoothly. Kxdocker also runs pretty smoothly with the export CXXFLAGS=" $CXXFLAGS -DENABLE_REPAINT "following compiler directive. You may want to examine your implementation, and search for potential memory leaks, open handles, or memory hogging redraw events. I took a quick look at your source, and it appears that you are using double buffering, but something is slowing the resize as I pan my mouse left and right, causing the Parabolic animation to be very choppy.

2. Every dock except for kxdocker has suffered the problem of having the widget resize itself followed by the icons resizing themselves to fill the the newly created space. However, ideally, the dock should resize itself with the icons for a smoother look and feel. I'm aware that this is a product of the ksmoothdock 2.1 code that you application is built upon, but you may want to put a little effort in solving that problem. I'm not as familiar with the kxdocker source, but he definately has solved this problem.

3. I love the labels you've implemented. They remind me of my favorite dock (Yzdock).

4. You've implemented a hardcoded delay on mouse entry. Would you consider making the delay user adjustable, so that users running boxes at different speeds and memory configuration, could adjust this setting to their box.

5. Image seperators are a must. I'm not sure were these rank on your priority list, but since you've chosen to go ahead and implement the taskbar and you've manage to implement the a seperator that dynamically move as the widget is resized, I'm certain that an image implementation isn't to far behind.

Finally, this is a great application. It currently isn't very usable on my box due to the choppy animations, but if you can solve this problem, it would definitely replace the reigning champ in my mind - ksmoothdock 3.2. One last bit of praise: the drag and drop item list is excellent, great work.

 Awsome!

Excellent work! I look forward to seeing future releases with some extra features like the option for a background bar (configurable transparency would be nice) and bug fixes (like fixing the fact that you can't come at it with the mouse from the side, or the magnification will freak out)

Thanks :) But... it _has_ (pseudo) transparency and it is configurable (opacity level); on the other hand, you may set a background color or background image (check in Preferences).

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
