I, too, missed my dockapps initially, but now I'm glad to NOT have them!
It forced me to think about what I was displaying and, more importantly,
why. Since them, I've hacked all I need/want into my status script and
am much happier with that single line than with my old gkrellm2. See
example at : approx netload,
mem/swap, cpuload, uptime, daily min/cur/max temp, lunar data, solar
rise/set, and current date/time.
