Is there something wrong with me; it is just that despite the near religious zealotry these two apps attract, I just don't get them. I know Quicksilver is fantastic, I understand that and have tried to use it people say give it a chance and you will come to love it and you won't be able to use a Mac without it. Well I tried, I tried to do as much as possible with it for as long as I could. It just frustrated, then annoyed and finally angered me. Why doesn't it do what the hell I want it to. I have used Launchbar in the past and although it doesn't do as much as QS, it does it properly and without annoyance. I now don't use either and haven't found a productivity drop, quite the contrary in fact. Spotlight seems to do just fine. That brings me to the second app of concern, Growl. I have one question, WHY? I mean, what is the point, why does it help or is it just a silly little toy to use for the sake of it? Again I have tried to use it and I once even got it to actually notify me of an event and when it did I just thought - "Meh" So, what is it about these two apps that people fawn over, why do you love using them and how do they help in your enjoyment or productivity when using your Mac because, as of yet, I just don't get it?
