I've recently removed the bottom toolbar, in Ubuntu, and replaced it with gnome-do, using the "Docky" theme.
Things looks nice, but I have a couple of questions :
The dock doesn't differentiate between a shortcut and the application itself when launched. What if I want to launch more than one time that app ? (ie. the console).
The dock shows all apps launched, not just the apps launched on that particular desktop. Can I change this behavior ? I haven't found it in the preferences.
