    The avant window navigator in the Lucid repos has given me no trouble and is certainly stable. With Karmic I did install from the PPA but I do not think it's really necessary in Lucid - unless of course the whole thing changes dramatically. There are more than enough applets to keep everyone happy and only one applet (that I don't need) doesn't work.

    Well since Lucid is LTS, its not a bad idea to keep the program updated via the ppa, currently its the latest but since these programs are in constant state of development, lots of stability fixes and new features are being constantly added.

    AWN has worked fine for me in the past. I have not yet used it with Lucid though, but I wouldn't expect any problems. Easy to use, and gets the job done.

    Docky all the way. Using it with gnome at the moment but have used it with openbox. It's been the least buggy and easiest to configure dock i've experienced. I know you're running gnome so a deffo thumbs up for Docky.
