I picked up a link to this thing off of Vasilli's Retire your Dock.
In the past, I've steered clear of these types of things. From a distance, their goal seemed to be somehow bolting something like the Microsoft Startup menu back into OSX. With the extra wide monitor, the dock on the side, and in particular corner activated eXpose', I didn't think I'd appreciate something like this. But I thought I'd take the plunge and try this QuickSilver launcher/finder/whatever.
First reactions are positive. I'm not sure I'm really leveraging all of what it can do yet. And it is a different path to getting at applications/data, so we'll see if I can retrain myself to use it and do so regularly. Thanks for the post, and even more so to "water" for the comment.
