Nice launcher for XFCE: AWN vs. Cairo-Dock vs. Wbar ?


I'm looking for some nice and functional OS-X-like launcher for XFCE. Avant-Window-Navigator, Cairo-Dock and Wbar come to my mind.

I'd be curious about your experiences with those. Can you recommend (or explicitly NOT recommend) one of them? I'm looking for the best of functionality and stability. I thought I'd rather ask first before launching the SlackBuilds

Any suggestions?

cairo-dock works fine for me on a number of installations. only on 1 GHz UP machines the cpu power is insufficient for smooth animations.
