Publisher's Description

Y'z Dock is a program launcher like the dock in MacOS X. This application is currently in beta, so please send all reports to the author. In order to add icons, drag and drop a file (.exe, shortcut, etc.) straight from Explorer to the dock area. In order to delete an icon, drag and drop the icon out of dock. Place the PNG images for your icons in the icons folder. Right-click on the icons in the dock, choose 'Property' and choose your icons images there. Right-click anywhere on your dock background and choose 'Setting' to change the settings that apply to the dock itself. The clock and the trash bin are not yet implemented, but they will be shortly.

Extremely small memory footprint. About 672k w/o being in use, but about 2.2kb with use. The setting qualities are all on high, and I have it pretty transparent. Great functionality. I highly reccomend this app, just Google around and you'll find a good link.

Well it gets a 1 from me now. Click on the link to his website and you will see he stopped working on it due to threats from Apple. How stupid! Here I thought maybe Apple was better than Microsoft, but obviously not. They are just as much a bully as Bill is.

First off, this is a great program. If I can't get a true Mac emulator for my PC, than this is as good as it gets. Now to all you Mac flamers out there, I'm a die-hard PC user. I haven't touched a Mac since the Apple //e I used in elementary school. I haven't looked at benchmark tests, so I don't know any "official" stats (since I don't trust the SPEC tests). All I know is that my P3 1.0 gHz computer doesn't run StarCraft as fast as my friend's G4 733 mHz. I don't care of Mac processors don't have the same gHz speed as Pentiums. The simple fact is, they perform better.

I'm still not giving up my PC, though.

This new version is so fast! This program has completely replaced my quick launch bar, and its the most useful piece of software on my PC. Great original concept by Apple. My only problem with Y'z Dock is the number of page faults that show up in my windows task manager. The program never has crashed for me, but it seems that there are page faults occuring every second the program is running. The only other program on my PC to do this is explorer.exe (lol). And after running Y'z dock for several hours, I had 10,000,000 page faults, and this is no joke. I dont know a thing about page faults, but I would sleep better at night if this bug were addressed :-) All in all, this is definately a five star program.

Y'z Dock is very cool!

It's almost exactly like Apple's Dock!

I have a tiny bit of a problem with the magnification, but that's a problem with my system anyway.

5 stars--and 5 more that I couldn't add

I've never had a problem with downloading anything from DT2. I don't have a software firewall, but a hardware firewall. As for the daily releases, Mr. Yamaguchi is fixing bugs as they are reported to him. Thelast two daily releases were to fix a multi-monitor bug. Mr. Yamaguchi does not have a multi-monitor system himself, so he has to rely on others to report bugs. As for the program, it's the BEST dock out there, and keeps getting better with every revision. Now with the docklet SDK released, there has become available a weather docklet, a calender docklet (i-cal), a mail checker docklet, and an 8-ball docklet. You can get these from DT2 as well.

What is up with daily releases??? They never released builds so quick before til now. Kind of annoying having to go thru the process of installing everyday!

Great little program. I use it at work and everyone asks me what it is. You can make it look real nice.

Funny how it's always the very few that are the loudest. Paranoid, ranty? In 2 months 60gb of bandwidth, call us whatever you want but this place isn't stealing from us anymore. Instead of getting mad at us maybe you should aim that at Betanews. When you have to lay out the cash to support another site that steals from others then lets see how you feel. Then when you try to talk to Nate Mook and all he can reply is "then take it down" maybe your attitude will change. It costs enough to run a site without supporting others that use such dishonest and under handed tactics. They not only steal but they try to hide it behind a script. The ethics here are beyond comprehension and obviously beyond some of it’s users too.

Unfortunately the designtechnika.com site is so tightly closed up that I could not download no matter how hard I try with my firewall enabled - disabling it is not an option for me. If you use any type of firewall with this site, you are shunned. I'm sure the software is dandy, but I'll pass on it due to the host's paranoid policies.

Now this is a great little toy, but I found it INSANELY difficult to download it, or any of the docklets, skins or icons from the designtechnika.com site because of their rabid obsession with bandwidth theft. Don't get me wrong, they have a right to protect the bandwidth they pay for, but short of completely uninstalling Flashget (which I'm not going to do) everything method I tried resulted in their little ranty "stopthief" page appearing. Cutting off their nose to spite their face, maybe? Would have been five stars if I could have downloaded some skins...
