Circle Dock / Re: Many background and and CircleDock Clone

Rigel: Guarda che non mi sono offeso, so cosa intendevi dire! anzi ti devo confessare che ho interpretato male cio che Markham ha scritto! Avevo interpretato malamente...del tipo "è un suo lavoro originale non si basa sul codice di CircleDock ma dice che è un'idea originale"  :P   e questo dopo aver letto il titolo della webpage che dice "C'è solo un vero Circle Dock e l'hai trovato". Allora volevo solo mettere delle cose in chiaro. Come ho scritto, io ero in cerca di una dock circolare e quando vidi Orbit fui entusiasmato ma non era per me usabile. Poi è venuto CircleDock ed ero veramente gasato e lo usato per un pò. Ma dopo diverso tempo di utilizzo, aggiungendo e aggiungendo link, sinceramente era un pò lentino, passava un secondo abbondante prima che mi visualizzava i link del gruppo(anche l'attuale versione ho provato ha lo stesso problema). Poi ogni volta che volevo tornare al menu principale dovevo schiacciare sul centro...insomma per me era lento il meccanismo (magari per altri va bene) e quindi una volta per tutte ho deciso di fare una dock proprio come volevo io e così è nato CianoDock. Attualmente lo sto riscrivendo per ottimizzarlo e renderlo più veloce e aggiungendo qualche altra cosina.
Comunque io principalmente sono un grafico che si diletta nella programmazione, e quindi per me le cose devono essere dirette e veloci, devono apparire nel momento giusto, belle e animate e che non devono mangiare molta memoria...arrrgh lo so lo so, chiedo troppo! ma ci sto provando...
Hai scritto che man mano consigliavi delle idee su come migliorare la dock, sarei felice se potessi farlo anche per la mia!
Riguardo a unire i progetti, si potrebbe fare ma bisognerebbe riscriverli da zero e bisogna vedere se le idee non sono in contrasto, e comunque i 2 progetti sono oramai molto avviati.

Mouser: Thanks for your welcome and for compliments- :Thmbsup: Anyway yes, everyone build lots of Docks following their own idea and this is great becouse there were lot's of kind of people !
Anyway I wanna say sorry to the forum if I answer the first part in italian!  :P

Hi I'm Luciano Palladino the creator of CianoDock  :),
well I just realize that CircleDock has been updated and I'm happy about it. Anyway I wanna say couple things...
Has I wrote, I never said that's an original dock idea (I wrote it on the webpage too) I was just unsatisfied about the docks around, my purpose isn't to claim an original dock or fight with other docks. (Anyway a pie menu it's a old idea you can find it also in Autodesk Maya for example or another pie dock before circledock that goes opensource but now I don't remember the name)
Well it's impossible to find a software that fit all the needs you want to. So I decided to create CianoDock. At the beginning I use it for personal usage after I decided to share it. I decided it also becouse CircleDock wasn't updated since long time, and seems dead. I want to specify that I didn't take any line of code from CircleDock, becouse it's hard and a waste of time try to understand code made from other programmers, Eric Wong or Mark Hamilton can agree about this.
At the end, also if they share the same pie style of menu, they have a different approach to organize and display things, so I will say that both fit the needs on different kind of people (at the end it's worth for the end users!)
I'll keep continue developing CianoDock in the way I always wanted a dock has to be for me. I'll not go to far adding stuff and stuff cuz lot's of projects that do this always loose the original point about the project was intended to. My base features are:
the size, space and memory
the speed, to load the software and interface
the easy usage and fast and direct access
and last but not least EYECANDY!

p.s. if you realize, between version 0.3 and 0.3.5 I decimate the space from almost 10 mb of downloading to 5mb this becouse I'm very picky about save resources.

Hope my english was good enought to explain my thoughts.
Cheer for CircleDock !  :Thmbsup:
