Network Manager Docklet Coming To AWN

Filed under
Software

Avant Window Navigator, a popular dock for Linux, is going to be getting a shiny new network manager docklet.

AWN was/is perceived by some, perhaps unjustly, as a gimmicky or novelty-type application than something like Docky – an application that may look cool and does some funny animations but offers no productivity enhancement. This is, in part, why GNOME Do Docky was/is so incredibly popular - it changed the way you interacted with your system.

All of that aside, AWN is maturing quite nicely and has certainly shaken off lot of the frivolity that Cairo-Dock, as an example, suffers from.
