Quicksilver Changes Everything
at
The Apple Blog


This is an app that should be ported to Gnome now that it has a working spotlight like desktop search engine via beagle. Basically its an extensible application launcher. It simplifies the whole launching thing on the desktop. No need to wade thru icons, menus or folders to run your application. This is as close as you would get to manly CLI paradise. Its hard to describe what it does in words, you have to experience it to appreciate the beauty of this application.

It doesn changes everything. It simply rocks!

I think the GNOME Launch Box is the closest to Quicksilver at the moment http://developer.imendio.com/wiki/GNOME_Launch_Box

Though, deskbar-applet in GNOME 2.14 seem to already cover what Quicksilver provides.
