I was a Windows user until about 8 years ago. Now, I have both a Mac and Windows computer on my desk. There are things that the Mac can do much better than Windows. One of the features I love on my Mac is the Dock.
The Dock is a bar of icons that sits at the bottom or side of the screen providing easy access to your favorite applications without the clutter of a bunch of desktop shortcuts.
I found a free program that lets me have this neat feature on Windows! It's called RocketDock. Check it out at http://rocketdock.com
