Dock Your Applications In a Circle With CircleDock
By on August 17th, 2008

Mac users may be well versed with the Dock that allows users to launch applications easily, though Windows does not have a Dock as a built-in feature, you can definitely use several applications to do that, using tools such as RocketDock which we had mentioned earlier in our productivity tools and ObjectDock.

CircleDock is another application that will allow you to add a dock to Windows albeit in a circular/spiral manner. This is quite different from the regular rectangular docks provided by other softwares.
