Nexus Review

Fernando Ortega
Mac-like Dock for Windows
A review of Nexus by Fernando Ortega

Envious of your Mac buddies with their cool-looking transparent Dock instead of the Start Menu? Without going into details that such a system has been around much longer than Mac OS X has, Windows users can now install a similar-looking Dock at the bottom of your Windows desktop with Nexus!

Nexus is a completely free dock for Windows with support for many features. While there is also an ultimate version with some more features, the free version of Nexus includes support for worldwide weather forecasts, transparent icons, display on the system tray, a net meter module for a visual output of network usage and support for easily switching icons by simply dragging PNG, ICO and TIFF files directly onto the current icon.

Apps included with the Nexus Dock from WinStep are a clock, weather application, recycler, email check, network, CPU and RAM monitors/widgets.

By using the Nexus Dock, you get extremely fast access to your favourite programs with a fresh look, using the technology already on your Windows system: The Aero Glass effects.

Nexus Dock also supports virtual system objects like the Control Panel and My Computer. The web site of this program also offers thousands of free backgrounds to its users and also supports the skins of other, competing docks.

Bring the beautiful look of Mac OS X to your Windows PC while keeping the functionality of a PC. Easy with Nexus.

This program will automatically search for updates.

Winstep Nexus Dock is licensed as Freeware for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) operating system / platform from desktop enhancement software without restrictions. Winstep Nexus Dock 16.6 is available to all software users as a free download (Freeware).
