Orbit - The round dock for Windows


Orbit is a free application launcher similar to Apple's Dock or Rocketdock, but with a difference. Orbit is round. The program, instead of taking up space on screen, it stays hidden and only shows up whenever you call it. Orbit appears around the mouse showing shortcuts, folders, links to web sites, image thumbnails and all the other items that you have added to it. With transparencies and some nice animations like zooming and spinning, Orbit is fun to use.


Even though Orbit takes just 1 MB of space on the hard disk, it can take around 30 MB of memory when running, which is obvious with all the cute effects, but it isn't exactly a resource hog.

Orbit requires the .NET framework to run.
