If this subject has already been posted I appologize in advance, that I missed it.Circle Dock has been chosen as the The Best Free Software of 2009 by PCMag.com
1. Circle Dock
Who says a dock has to actually... dock? To the side of the screen, that is. Circle Dock brings up a spiraling launcher interface with all the icons you want to click. Rotate it with the wheel on your mouse and change the skin to suit your desktop.
And to Circle Dock's credit it is ranked higher than Stardock's Objectdock.
As Objectdock has been the leader for so long this is of incredible standing/significance.
Not to mention they are in the number 2 spot
I run Circle Dock, Object dock, and Rocket Dock, but I am ready to discontinue use of the latter two.
I find it unfortunate that the Circle dock project has seemed to stall, at the moment, but my sincere hope is that it does not falter, and that these folks here, in development, can capitalize on the free advertising and support that has just been handed by PC Magazine.
To say I like this program is an understatement.
I am a graphic designer, It Administrator, digital presentation giver/developer, and CEO of a personal business.
I combine the unlimited navigation provided by Circle Dock in conjunction with 360 Desktop
on my laptop. This highly compensates for a lack of 4 monitors, while I am out in the field, But circle dock is so good I have no conflict in use with three monitors + one large demonstration viewer at my office.
Circle dock gets a lot of attention during my presentations, and I use it as an eye-getter. I will pre-program Circle dock with the necessary Folders, Icons, and dress prior to presentation, and I Have received numerous comments about its effectiveness to get attention and appear organized in presentation situations.
I Have not hesitated to recommended this product to my colleagues, friend, and anyone who has inquired.
It is my sincere hope to see this project grow.
Thanks to the program writers of this project for making me a better presenter, and more productive over all.
Not to mention that this dock is cool as all get out!
