ObjectDock vs RocketDockIf you're looking for a good replacement to RocketDock then this fits the bill. It's able to launch shortcuts to 64-bit programs and it has a built-in docklet called Flyout menu, which you'll find very similar to Stacks. It's not quite as user-friendly but I'm still finding options for customization.
