    Docks are really cool and they are helpful when come to use.

    Contrary to what you say it is possible to reposition docky to other screen edges. When the congig dialogue is open click on the dock and drag it to the required screen edge.

    Capability to detach the applets and show icons in 3D are just more configuration options, which I should have mentioned, and I am updating my post to include it, thanks for pointing it out, but that doesn’t change the conclusion in any way. I also found Cairo dock to be less stable, e.g. when I tried to configure weather applet to make it display my local weather information. It crashed.

    The conclusion is a bit hasty I think;
    Cairo-Dock is not only about options, but also the only one to have 3D effects and hardawre acceleration, as well as the ability to detach its applets on the desktop.

    AWN when used along with DockbarX gave me the best experience.

    Nice review…and I think you have them judged about right. I have used Docky early in its life, and have not tried it lately, but quickly went to AWN, but now use Cairo, exactly for its customization, and at the time, stability over the others.
