To the reviewer below: I'm keeping it at the bottom of my screen and I can see none of the problems you mention...The previous version couldn't stay there at all, but with the latest I have no problem.
It is a very interesting app. I really like the concept of keeping everything inside containers. Also, that I can double-click a container and start all of the shortcuts inside together. It has many features and not that great of a help file (at least for now) so it takes a bit of learning to figure it out.

Seems to work ok but I fail to see much functional advantage.
Also it does some weird (and annoying) things such as assumes windows taskbar at bottom and jumps out of the tray every time the screen gets a refresh, etc. etc. These things alone were enough to make me remove it after 10 mins.
Like the others said... if you use sTabLauncher, Winbar, ObjectDesk, Aston, Talisman this seems totally pointless (and looks ordinary compared to some of those).

If you use Stardock Object Desktop leave this alone. It has a great deal of options and is very flexable. With Stardock it's redundent.

Nice prog, does what it claims very well, just would wish that the RSS feature came as an optional component in the setup, I don't like to much RSS, instead I would prefer some hardware monitors.

Tried this before and seems bloatware and pretty much a waste of time unless u really need it.
I use pstart portable for the most part.
Nice looking anyways

I give it a five, is an accessory I have looked for. I use it and Rocketdock. A strange thing though.......on my second machine all the containers I had loaded dissappeared upon startup one day.

Neat effort, but is it just me or does the screenshot above look vaguely like Windows 3.1 with its nested groups ;)

Interesting concept. It seems to work fine.
It look nice with a little set up and I can see where they are going with it. Needs a bit more functionality before it becomes an essential. But for such an early verison it is very good at what it does, just not sure I need what it can do!
Take a look though, it is like a big post it note desktop but the post its can have anything in them from images to urls.

Neat app with low cpu usage. Ignore the screenshots, everything is highly customizable.
Link folders, create menus, freestanding urls, pictures, drag and drop support. The way I like to work, this is'nt for me but for those of you who like to use the whole desktop, rather than just the edges, this has some nice options and anyway is fun to play with.
Please don't post reviews if you have'nt tried it, your just wasting space.
