I use it as a quick launch bar
RocketDock is a computer program (for Windows 2000 and higher) providing a dock similar to that in the Mac OS X Aqua GUI. It is free under a Creative Commons License and is distributed by Punk Software. The dock is also compatible with Windows Vista, and is able to show live updates for the windows that are minimized, like in Mac OS X, and live thumbnail updates on the task bar in Vista.
