    Rocketdock has a lower resource footprint and is equally as sexy. I see no reason why either one won't work on 64-bit. Also, definitely check out RKLauncher.

    The triangle thing is a OS enabled thing, there are many ways to disable it, but it disables it for ALL shortcuts. I use registry edits to do it but there are other ways that are safer.

    Why not RKlauncher? I used that for a really long while and although it wasn't as stable as rocketdock, it sure was better animated. Loved it.
    But docks are a thing of the past . Its all about keystroke launchers now.

    Launchy FTW! I can't imagine living without it.

    Don't forget stackdock if you want to use Rocketdock! [​IMG]

    oh, and BTW, rocketdock for me, it's essential for me to simulate that XMB
