Freeware Friday: Stardock Objectdock

There will always be Windows haters, and Mac haters, nothing can change that. People are entitled to their own opinions, but what about the people who want best of both worlds. Those who don’t really care about picking one or the other. I for example am one of them, at one point I actually couldn’t afford a mac (many people are in the same boat that I was in). The one thing I was truly jealous that Mac had was the dock which windows doesn’t offer. Lucky for us though the people down at Stardock found a solution for those who want the Mac dock on their windows based computers!


Stardock is a company that actually focused on making a bunch of cool items to make your windows based computer look a lot prettier then it already is! Objectdock is actually one of their most popular ones. People get bored of their operating system and UI, that’s normal. So lots of people want to experiment with things like Objectdock to get a feel of mac without actually switching. I personally love Objectdock, I used it all the time when I was on windows, then later after buying a mac, I grew out of it and swapped back to the quick launch.

In all honesty, I’m actually not a big fan of the Mac Dock. I actually learned to love the combination of the ObjectDock and Windows startbar combination. There are a lot of plugins that the Objectdock has, that the Mac dock surprisingly doesn’t have. it also doesn’t disrupt your cpu cycles and ram too bad!

Now the real question is what I actually recommend this application for people to download and the answer is that it really depends on the user. If you don’t care about having a pretty computer and you only want speed, then this is NOT for you. If you use your computer just for simple apps and you’re bored of your UI then definitely download this application.
