Not quite Quicksilver
I've spent a few hours here playing with some of the Quicksilver-like tools that Kristian Kristensen pointed me at. Some are interesting, and I tried Slickrun and Launchy but I'm not impressed. I'm looking for one simple feature: I want it to scan my start-menu (and a few user-contrib directories) and make it easy for me to find entries. The launchers I tried didn't let me control where it scans (at least not that I can figure) which is a crucial for me.
I've heard that Vista improves the start-menu. Will that solve the problem?
