My family has been buying Mac's since I no longer do their Windows tech support. Now I'm Apple Tech support. Can't win.

RocketDock Rocks!

I am always looking for cool little apps, especially ones that mimic Mac OS X apps. I love my Mac, but I tend to do most of my design and development work on my PC. Yeah, I know, I know. I should be using my Mac for design. That’s a whole other saga.





I reported a while ago on my own blog about Y’z Dock, an OS X style application dock, unfortunately they were told to stop by Steve Jobs’ team of lawyers. Well we shall see how Punk Software, the makers of RocketDock, fare. They have come up with a similar type of application as Y’z Dock, but in my opinion have done a better job executing it.


I recently installed this little app, and like the ease of use in adding additional icons. They also have a usable screen to adjust specific icon settings.

You can even have it hold minimized windows like the OS X version:


Definitely check this out if you are a PC user looking for some Mac style.

  1. I love the MAC ads. Those alone make me want to switch outta windows..

  2. I’ve been using Apple computers since 1983 ( I had an Apple IIe), and Macs since 1991. The newest Macs are extremely user friendly, not to mention fast.
    My wife who is not a big computer user, uses our Mac with no problems.

    Since most of the places I’ve worked have been PC oriented, I have been using PC’s for most of my work related projects, and of course gaming. 🙂
