    Definitely sleek looking. That screenshot is obviously the Liberty rom on DX (or D2), but maybe just a custom Launcher Pro dock background and icons? Maybe a custom ADW theme? Here's a couple that are similar:

    Here's another one I was looking at recently, http://www.droidforums.net/forum/chevyno1/117492-theme-wip-kuro-black-yakitori-ss4-96-a.html (download for LP skin available separate from rom)

    I don't use Launcher Pro so I don't know if you can move app drawer to the side like your screenshot, but you definitely can in ADW. Also, I know the new ADW ex can change the dock backgrounds too.

    I'm all but certain it's either Launcher Pro (Plus?) or ADW EX, but looking at it more, I notice 1st "messages" is a long word and it's not centered like on the middle icon. Maybe asking Kellex or just reading comments on droid life will yield results... here's more pics:

    As far as different "icons" you'd simply need to modify the dock backgrounds to put whatever words you want on there. It's a neat idea, they just put the words on the background and you have to put transparent "blank" icons on the dock itself to sort of (avoiding quotes) enable them.

    I could help with all that if you aren't too savvy with image editing? I use 72x icons for ADW. Would LP use the same I guess? Transparent anyways so no matter if they have to scale I guess. If you need help, what apps do you want on the background?

    Edit: transparent icon... trust me, it's there ;)

    Tried editing, but ran into a problem

    I tried to edit this dockbar by emailing the png to myself then editing it on my pc with paint...but instead of there being blank/transparent space on the top and bottom, it's big white bars. Does anyone know how to fix that?

    Edit: Nevermind! I downloaded GIMP and that took care of it for me.
