The OS X Dock is that extremely popular bar of icons that sits at the bottom of the Mac screen. Providing easy access to several Mac applications (such as Mail, Safari, iTunes, Address Book, and QuickTime Player), the dock displays the currently-running applications (and the Trash icon, which looks like a waste basket), and holds minimized windows. Additionally, you can add your own applications, files, and folders to the Dock.
RK Launcher with Mac OS X theme
There are also several docks for Windows, similar to the OS X dock
RK Launcher by raduking - Freeware [Download]
RK Launcher is an application that will allow the user to have a visually pleasing bar at the side of the screen, used to quickly launch shortcuts. With support for themes, PNG and ICO icons, and with smooth amazing animations, RK Launcher is a versatile and great taskbar replacement.
Object Dock by Stardock - Freeware [Download]
ObjectDock is a shareware program for Microsoft Windows 2000/XP that lets users have a highly customizable dock on their desktop. It features a variety of available responses to mouse-over events, including zooming, gentle rocking and glowing, among other effects. With a unique icon zooming system that provides smooth mouse-over effects (it’s debatable which is better—Object Dock’s or RK Launcher’s magnification algorithm), and a distinctive “tabs” feature, Object Dock is one of the most popular docks available!
