Default how to get Apple's "bottombar"

Is there a way to get something similar to that bottom bar with all the programs on it that Apple's have?

Sort of looks like a widget, but has programs only...I thought StyleXP had it built-in, but it doesnt.

I use ObjectDock. You can set it for the bottom or the side, but I use it up top.

There's all kinds of docks. RocketDock and MobyDock cometo mind.

Both of them are free, as is a basic version of ObjectDock (the one I use).

just a quick check in the task manager...

yzdock uses 0 cpu and 1,048K mem

aside from that, it has never slowed me down...

ObjectDock.exe 00 CPU 880K Mem Usage

But, then, I've only got 7 shortcuts on it.
