    What system is this guy running?

    Why wouldn't you just spotlight the app name press command to highlight the top hit and hit enter?

    Because Quicksilver is a lot faster for launching apps... ;)

    I use Quicksilver for launching apps and opening regular files, and Spotlight for finding those files I rarely use and/or aren't sure where are...
