"Linux users have a few good application launchers to choose
from, but if we had to pick, the feature-filled favorite GNOME Do
would have to win the title of best.
Synapse is GNOME Do's most up and coming competition, featuring
a Zeitgeist plugin that can do a lot of really cool things. It has
a lot of the more basic plugins that Do has, like Rhythmbox,
Dictionary, and so on, but its still fairly young, so GNOME Do
still wins in terms of sheer features. If you don't like Do for any
reason, though, Synapse would be one of the first places I'd look
for a replacement.
