AWN, or Avant Window Navigator, is an open source dock bar like the dock for MacOSX. But instead, it’s for Linux. Oh yes, the mighty Linux.
Basically it operates almost exactly like the Dock bar for MacOSX. You can drag applications to and from it and use it as a launchbar, and everything else. Along with Compiz and Beryl, you can’t go wrong with the eye candy for Linux. And it’s not a resource hog. Which should be a huge plus.
In any case, you’ll definitely want to take a look at it. Even the peeps at DLS have given some thumbs up to this baby. And if DLS gives props, you have to check it out at least, right?
