    ObjectDock FTW!!

    I tried RocketDock, but couldn't get used to the way it worked for some reason.

    I havent tried Rocketdock yet because apparently it doesnt work with x64 before. So i went ahead with Objectdock instead and im quite impressed.

    Unless RD uses less resources than OD, i might consider switching

    I used both and just liked the look and responsiveness of Objectdock better. There is nothing wrong with Rocketdock, though. It's still a good program.

    Anyone else having trouble with the weather icon not working on ObjectDock?

    Mine stopped working this morning. I've tried to load another weather icon (docklett?), but it also simply says "Feed not available... try later"

    Anyone have any ideas on how I can fix this?

    Thanks

    The weather source might be temporarily dead

    I use ObjectDock but it does crash on me a lot. And yes, the weather docklet does do that sometimes. If you just wait a little bit and try again, it usually works.

    I prefer ObjectDock. I have used RD on my 32 bit systems in the past, but prefer the customization and look of OD better. Not to mention theres no RD 64bit support.

    RD user here.

    Tried OD out a while ago, and the fussy program did not meet my hassle-free needs.
