Is it possible to replace the unity launcher?

I happen to like Docky; I also like AWN and other such docks. So my question is, with Ubuntu 11.04, and Unity; can I still keep 'Unity' but operate without the Dock? (or indeed, other elements?)

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Yes I believe so. So far it has been as simple as

sudo aptitude search unity #Remove all packages
sudo aptitude search netbook #This was done for netbook editions
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop

There is no reason that a similar process for unity desktop won't carry over.

I think Dante Ashton is asking if it will be possible to use the Unity interface without the unity dock. If not, this question is a duplicate of several others. – dv3500ea Nov 1 '10 at 22:50
