There are hundreds of choices for you provided by many contributors on the web. These are free to use and released under a GPL license. Also, it’s easy to install and to get the desired look. Moreover, they are highly configurable with extensive support.

Main Functionality

ADeskbar is a panel/dock for Linux.

Pros
Excellent Openbox integration
Easy to set up
Lightweight with a low memory footprint
Built in using Python
Fully customization
Support for widgets or ‘docklets’
Built with GTK
Cons
No theme support

It’s no secret that I love Openbox, out of all the window managers that I have to choose from, it’s usually the one that drags me in. One thing that irritates me about Openbox is the lack of a panel or taskbar. ADeskBar solves most of the problems that I have. I’ve even gone so far as to make a custom session with both Openbox, ADeskbar and Nautilus. Nautilus would handle the desktop, icons and wallpaper, Openbox would obviously be the window manager, and ADeskBar would be the panel. All of this was done inside the Openbox session and let me tell you, it was probably one of the lightest desktop experiences that I’ve ever had — and I’ve used quite a few panels. Not a lot of panels are very well designed, so it’s nice to see such a well put together one.

The thing that I love most about it is the simple fact that it is basically built for use inside Openbox. That’s pretty awesome because outside of LXpanel, not too many docks or panels are created specifically with Openbox in mind. Another really great thing about it is that it has panel widgets or helpers. ADeskBar’s widgets might not be quite as complicated as Docky’s ‘dock helpers,’ but it adds a really nice touch.
