    I was a happy Colibri user for the last couple of months. Colibri is a very nice alternative program launcher for Windows. Last week I uninstalled Colibri and switched completely to Launchy. Launchy is better, faster, and it is opensource. Since version 0.9.1 search results are also sorted by the frequency of use.
    Press ALT SPACE F ENTER to launch Firefox. Press ALT SPACE S ENTER to launch SQL Server Management Studio.

    Thanks for the tip, Mr. Peter.

    From the Launchy Readme.pdf

    Launchy is the most efficient way to open files and programs on your
    computer. Nobody likes to hunt through the start menu to find an application,
    just to find that the application is hidden under some obscure folder named
    after a company you have never heard of! Instead, Launchy is a smart search
    program which tries to guess which program or file you are looking for and will
    launch it when you hit the enter key. It is only visible when you hit the
    alt+space key combination; otherwise it hides in the background. Once you
    have used it for a few days, it becomes an indispensable utility for your
    computer. And it’s free!
