Launch Software: Launchy versus Executor

Post by Peter2 »

I found two freeware programs which "launch software"

http://launchy.net/

and

http://executor.dk/

What are your experiences, your recommendations?

same idea, but far more refreshing concept and brilliant design.

I tried both of those and in the end found I prefer a menu driven system. I use LaunchOnFly 1.3.2 (last freeware version), I'll buy v1.5.2 soon though....

I've tried a few keystroke launchers, and decided to stick with Launchy 1.25.
It has everything i need and expect from a launcher. It learns with time and predicts what are you trying to launch, which is great feature, together with ability to type substrings with ommited characters. (for ex, typing xv can launch xnview)

I don't need zillion features, aliases creation, batch, search etc. (even those are supported)
