So recently I decided that I needed a launcher for my computer, because I install WAY to much crap on my computer, and then I can't remember where I put it, and I don't want to clutter my desktop with icons. What do I do? I use Launchy 2.0. That was ok for awhile, but then launchy decided that I didn't really want to run anything else on my computer, so it started to use 90% of my cpu and over 100,000 K ram NON STOP! That wouldn't do for me, so I did some googleing for an alternative to launchy, and ran across Enso. Combined with Enso words, Enso launcher is a very good universal launcher/spell checker/dictionary.
All I have to do is hold down the caps lock (who uses that key anyways?), and then type in a command, such as open vl (which by the time I type vl it has already found the location of vlc media player, and is wondering if I wanted to open that.)

I don't really need to put a screen shot of it, because I can describe it just as good.

when you hold down the caps lock key a green box pops up at the top left of the screen, and inside that box it says "Welcome to Enso! Enter a command, or type "help" for assistance."
As soon as you start typing something, it instantly starts going through its list of commands in search of what you are wanting to do.

But I might as well put up a screen shot, so:

I'm so glad breakbeat techno isn't an illegal drug

It has been mentioned in the forums a few times. One of the more recent postings mentions that it is now free.

I figured it most likely had been mentioned before, but I decided to post it here, because I wanted to compare it to launchy, which hasn't been done on here that I know of.

"Enso launcher/words is a must for everyone!" sounds like a reccomendation to me. How does Enso compare to Launchy then?

I dumped Launchy to FARR.

After this post, I am going to give Enso a try.

it launches programs like launchy, and it has a built in calculator like launchy. Excuse me for using the wrong terms in public.

You know, I'm kind of sorry I posted this topic, can someone just remove it for me?

No reason to remove it, but i could merge it in with another Enso thread like this one:
http://www.donationcoder....m/index.php?topic=11865.0

As the author of Find and Run Robot (FARR) I think it's healthy to discuss all alternatives.  The only thing i do want to point out is that we've recently seen some amazing FARR plugins written by members here on the forum, so one nice thing about using FARR and being a DC member is that there is a very good chance if you have a feature request you'll see it come to life smiley
