i should probably start a new topic since in reality i would like to know which of three might tax my system less ; rocketdock (which im very familiar with, cause i used it for a good while in the past), fences which im playing around a little with right now, and objectdock that ive never used.
I CANNOT FIND a comparison or details about what the footprint of either one of these is. Ugh!
i know my system is not half the monster of what some of you guys roll with but what do you think. / besides actual testing, how can someone look at that versus a machines specs and figure more or less if its wasted energy.
another thing to note of course is that i have disabled a good bunch of services and processes so i do have a little reserve. no aero for example - standard theme (which youve probably noticed from screenshots - etc.,etc.,) and the list gos on.
