Launcher Migration

Speaking of launchers, I wanted to share this link to a non-OS-X piece of software because it's unusual to see direct imitation of cool OS X apps in pure free-software desktop environments. It's a bleeding-edge project to produce a Quicksilver-like launcher for GNOME (an open source desktop environment that can run on top of Linux, *BSD, Darwin, et al.). Very cool, and a positive statement of the rising influence of OS X in the world of desktop Unix. The project is called GNOME Launch Box. I might fire up my $60 special just to check it out.


  • kde has had a similar sort of thing for years: the mini-commandline (just hit alt-f2). there are still things it can do that can't be done conveniently in quicksilver.
