I wrote in another blogpost about launching applications on the MacBook and how I've always used a program on Windows called Launchy. After a tip in the comment section of this blogpost I have now tried out a program called Quicksilver.
The program works much like Launchy and gives me a quick way to start applications without having to go to Dock (as it's called on the Mac). It's really neat and I think I'll stick with it and use Spotlight for searchng documents and stuff like that.
Give it a try and write me a line of what you think.
