a good app launcher?


I am looking for a good app launcher. I have used gdesklets and its pretty good but I would like to try some others out but don't know of any others. Any would be fine whether they have many features of just a couple, I primarily use Gnome but every once in a while I will use KDE. Thanks for the suggestions.

I'm confused---application launchers are built in to the distro---and launcher icons can be added to any of the panels.

What does an "application launcher" do that is not already in your system?

try rxvt, the ultimate application launcher with so much more when using bash shell.

Tuxdev;
I am amused by your admonition to new users to "use proper English". A noble goal but, sadly, many otherwise intelligent and educated people cannot write their native language. But we digress......

Repeating my earlier question: What is an application launcher and why would one need/want one?
