Why I use Slickrun instead of Launchy
Launchy is pretty, and aesthetics are important, but Slickrun carries command-line history with it. For example, if I have a macro named "do" and I enter "do blah bleh floo", the next time I enter "do " it remembers "blah bleh floo", where Launchy remembers only "do".
Slickrun uses about half the memory, but since that is only about 10 MB, that’s not a major consideration.
Slickrun doesn’t have skins, and that’s a plus because it means I don’t fritter time looking at alternative skins.
