designed to help users forget about the application menu, the icons on
the desktop, and even the file manager.
Launchy indexes and launches applications, documents, project

A user then type in a few keys of the program he or she is searching

once it has been found. Launchy can be made to dissappear again by
hitting escape or alt+space.
