It is such a drama with Objectdock for years now ... however, now we know the reason at least. Not that the dock always had ... "issues"! In each version. And some bugs are open since ... ah, i forgot.
So, maybe we should gather some good reasons to show Stardock why they should further support the dock; and re-writing it sounds like a really, REALLY good idea to me as a solid basis!
I go first:
01.) Remember your companies name ... StarDOCK!
Okay, okay; that was a warmup ...
02.) No competition (which is a REALLY good reason for a paid product): On Windows there were a few more or less successful tries for docks like the Mac has. However, the famous "RocketDock" is dead for already many, many years and today the Nexus one is the only real competition. All other attempts are either also dead or never were full dock or niche products (like radial ones and such). If THAT is not a good reason than i do not know what is one! Combine that with a fair pricing, add it to the ObjectDesktop again and combine it with Fences like Start10 and voila!
03.-05.) See the last sentence in 02. – the first version of a text never is good, is it not?
So, guys; your turn ... what are all the good reasons? What do you like about the dock? Why do you love it and need it?
I would be willing paying the usual upgrade fee ... or even re-buy a fully re-written dock – when there is REAL support this time and updates/fixes are more often than 1-3 years ... We could even do a "Kickstarter" or such so there is a definitive income on Stardocks side ...
