    I have found in the past that Quicksilver is a much more capable/intelligent program than Spotlight.

    Is there a downside to running both? Or can I shut down spotlight, so it doesn't index/etc.?

    I find Spotlight's continuously updated catalog is better for finding files, whereas Quicksilver is a more capable application launcher (or anything else that doesn't need to be indexed too often). They have different uses, as far as I'm concerned.
