Hi odiernod, sorry to have sounded harsh, I do very much welcome the possibility to get something close to Quicksilver in functionality terms on Windows (and thanks for the portable version!). Will check out the new version and give people here an update - I suspect you'll need some time before there are usable skins though (the gree/yellow/brown one on display on your page is little better than the last one). Will you allow PNG/alpha transparency? If so I may take a stab at making a skin when you've published more details...
Visually, unless you've seen Quicksilver, you cannot appreciate how amazingly beautiful
the UI is. Screenshots simply don't do it justice. The UI is animated in subtle ways, and is always just fluid (CPU is simply unmeasurable). Alcor did an amazing job making everything flow together. This elegance is functional, for example DOMercury shows the arguments pane always, whereas Quicksilver only shows it when needed. I've never seen anything on Windows that does anything similar.
odiernod, you may also want to have a look at FARR, as it has some wonderful features such as user-modifiable matching heuristics, powerful alias system, and extensive tweakability:http://www.donationc...r/findrun/index.html
