Applications Dock functionality (launcher, lister, switcher combined), no eye candy required?

I am looking for an application which can function as 
applications dock (combined functions of applications launcher, 
lister and switcher), similar to OS X dock, but I don't need the 
eye candy (transparency, 3d effect, icon enlargement, bouncing 
icon, etc.) (in fact, when I use OS X, I set its dock visual 
effect to minimum). I actually prefer low weight low resources 
application, something like WindowMaker's application dock (not 
its widget dock) but works well with other desktop environment 
(i.e. can do drag & drop). It should also available in various 
distro, but specifically at present I need it to run in Fedora.

I tried Docker, but when I run it nothing show up in the screen. 
I tried SimDock, but it has several issues (does not seems to 
show an application is running, has errors, does not work well 
with GNOME). I tried GNOME Do (to get its Docky) but it has 
error (Failed to contact configuration server) that I still 
debug. Avant WM and CairoDock seems to be too heavy weight (need 
composited screen).

Any other suggestion? Thanks!
