Desktop Launch panel seen on youtube


I saw a video on youtube yesterday that was a "comparison" of windows vista look and feel, and ubuntu w/beryl look and feel. I am not going to start a flame war about which one was better or anything like that, what i am interested in is something that i saw on the ubuntu desktop. At the top center of the desktop was a launch bar that had a very "glassy" look to it with several icons such as firefox, amarok, home icon, and so on. I have searched the internet for this launch bar, but it is kinda hard to find something that you do not know what the name of is. If anyone knows what it is called, that would be very helpful. I am running suse 10.2 with KDE 3.5.7.

A link to the video might help

Looks like it might be kxdocker., which is no longer in development. There are a number of docks available (kooldock, kxdocker, kiba-dock to name a few), but if you're using Compiz-Fusion (or the now defunked beryl), i recommend using Kiba-dock. Supports composite extensions and has some pretty cool effects that might be a bit too much for everyday use, but toned down it's fantastic...
