The one feature I liked about Mac OSX is the dock, which acts like a quick launch for windows, enabling you to quickly open any application. Though Quick Launch does the job for windows, having a dock application would definitely be more useful.
Here is a list of free dock applications that will bring the much envied feature from Mac to your Windows PC.
RocketDock is one of the best dock applications available for Windows, we had also mentioned it earlier as a tool to increase your productivity. RocketDock allows you to store all your quick launch applications in the dock, for quick and easy access. In addition to that it also allows you to minimize applications directly to the dock.
