Linux – a good app for Ubuntu that mimics RocketDock


I'm looking for a dock application to use on Ubuntu, but suggestions are welcome for all platforms. I'm familiar with RocketDock, but don't think that it works for Linux. Any ideas?

    This BrightHub posting is on similar lines (so is this older link).

    Avant seems to be the pick.

    Avant Window Navigator (Awn) is a dock-like bar which sits at the bottom of the screen. It has support for launchers, task lists, and third party applets. The official applet and plugin repository is in a separate project, awn-extras.

    If you are using Ubuntu Hardy and above, AWN is included in the repository.
