This is the software I like most. I’ve just installed it a few days ago and I am very excited about it. I was missing such a thing for a long time, I tried various launchers and no one kept on my drive more than a 2-3 days, this one is really great. It gives exactly what you need, no more no less.
Example: you want to open an explorer window with folder “…/Projects” which is somewhere on your drive. Normally I would open My computer, then select a drive, then some subfolder, etc. With launchy I simply press Alt+Space and begin typing P, r, o, g,.. on a small window that pops up right in the middle of screen you see suggestions. When you see the right one press Enter. When you use something more often it appears first, so say for starting Skype ‘sk’ is enough.
This is, I think, the way software should be. Light and simple, doing exactly its function.
Good bye Start Menu!
