There seem to be a couple of different schools of thought when it comes to computers. On one hand, it's a powerful tool that helps enhance your productivity and lets you accomplish a lot with the least amount of time and effort possible. On the other hand, it's a fun toy that lets you play with games, multimedia, and all kinds of cool leisure-time stuff. So what about combining the serious productivity with a bit of fun as well? After all, you can drive your Ferrari down to the corner market for a gallon of milk, right?

ObjectDock is an app that adds a Mac OS X-style Dock to your Windows desktop. Get rid of your stodgy old Windows taskbar; ObjectDock even replaces your Windows Start button with an icon in the left-most position on the Dock. Drag your favorite apps onto the Dock, show or hide running apps and open docs, just go nuts. It's even got a couple of "docklets", little widget-like apps that are integrated with the Dock. While it may not be as much fun as an afternoon at the ballgame, it can add at least a little cool to your work day.

Object Dock is a free download. It's a Windows application and will be right at home on your XP (or later) system.
