KDE "If you run KDE, you aren't just stuck with the standard 'kicker' panel to operate as your app launcher and taskbar. There are a bunch of nice panel replacements that will spice up your desktop nicely. The ones that I've used and tested are kooldock, kxdocker and kiba-dock. So, what do these docks do, and what's cool about them?"

Shouldn't that be, "Dockers for KDE", would not expect anything Linux specific. Some wonder why people have such a hard time separating the OS from the desktop...

kiba-dock is dependant on Gnome. Which is a shame because as a Gentoo & KDE user, I don't want to compile Gnome just to try it.

kiba-dock is not kde specific. People in the know don't have trouble separating the two. However, using the term "linux" gives readers a good idea of where this article fits in the OS "spectrum".

"However, using the term "linux" gives readers a good idea of where this article fits in the OS "spectrum"."

"Dockers for GNOME and KDE" would have been a much better and more accurate title.
