So, what dock do the WebUpd8 readers consider to be the best? Read on to find out...

Docky got an amazing head start, but it's initial 60% slowly fade away. Docky still won the poll with 36.54% (558 votes), but only by 11 votes (less then 1%) from the second place, Avant Window Navigator (AWN). This most definitely has something to do with the fact that the poll was featured in the sidebar - so besides the WebUpd8 subscribers who probably voted in the beginning (~60% of them choosing Docky), there were a lot of votes by occasional users coming from search engines and so on. What does that mean? While most Linux / Ubuntu geeks (WebUpd8 subscribers) prefer Docky, the average user is more of a Avant Window Navigator fan. And Cairo Dock too, because Cairo Dock also got quite a few votes in the end (297 - 19.45%).

Dockbar (including DockBarX) got 4.26% of votes while ADeskBar only 0.65%.

In the "Other answer" votes were also mentioned: Wbar - 5 votes, Talika - 4 votes, the rest getting just one vote.

The next weekly poll should be out tomorrow or the day after. We're not really sure on what it should be, so leave a comment if you have an interesting weekly poll idea (application).
