    not sure why you would want to disable one of the best and smoothest features of OS X.

    but sure, go ahead.

    In Tiger, spotlight was weak. But in Leopard there is almost no need for a Spotlight replacement like Quicksilver.

    Interesting . I've actually never used it in Leopard . Once I upgraded from Tiger I still assumed it sucked . It seems faster no matter what . Plus changes my itunes with hot keys without having to download another app .
