Knowing the pace at which both gadgets and softwares are replaced by their successors these days, three years is a long time to live with the same visual interface. Especially when you know that Apple just released their new operating system, the OS X Lion. The new Metro UI that should come as part of Windows 8 should be quite a step up too. Nevertheless we come back to the issue at hand – how can you add some zing to your Windows 7 desktop? Meet RocketDock.
