I guess if you don't use a panel, a dock makes sense. Though with one I've never understood why one would use a dock other than for looks.
A launcher in a panel does everything but better, especially if you have more than one instance of a program running.
Speaking of, what is the use of polybar? (Serious question, not snarky)

As it's december, time for winter/christmas themed wallpapers...I change it daily (when I remember lol)
Bars are are prefect for window manager without a panel. Plus it can give you information about your system usage.
Its not a complete update from November on my main Driver, however I did switch from Dash to Panel back to Dash to Dock. It was a productivity thing . I do kinda miss my plain Gnome. Installing Gnome on my travel laptop converted me.

Another one using Xfce terminal in Cinnamon..
And with the Enlightenment theme that The Rasterman is working on...
Icons are nouveGnomeGray
first hand experience of weston !
i just did sudo pacman -S weston, edited the default ini file.
so far, so good ! can say WIP for further customisation.
using jgmenu fortop left "ARCH" button click and remaining is launcher, last is to logout of weston [though the default ctrl+alt+backspace works as default for wayland ]
I like the Xfce terminal better. I also use xfce4-screenshooter too....Good thing about Linux, can mix and match some parts
Sway + waybar + wofi. Secondary display: Azote wallpaper & color manager (1.7.8 development version).
- Colour palette: added styling clicked palette button with
button#color-btn-selected(for colour-blind people like myself);
- colour picker: colour image converted into the Gtk.ColorButton class, to allow the colour edition.
: It took me some time to reproduce all the stuff on Void.
