    I rarely used the advanced features of Quicksilver but used it mostly as a launcher. Now that Spotlight has been MUCH improved in Leopard I might just ditch Quicksilver and stick with Spotlight.

    Anyone else doing this?

    No. I use to use spotlight in place of QS (Never see why I need to download a seperate launcher when spotlight does the job). Now even spotlight is improved, i still use QS out of habit.

    Well QS is more than just a launcher. If you JUST use it as a launcher.........well Spotlight is now fast in Leopard.......so no need for QS.

    Sad it took this long to get Spotlight to REALLY work this well........am happy to see it finally work. Still needs a little work though.

    I use it MOSTLY as a launcher. I just like the way it works over spotlight.

    And +1 on spotlight improving. I remembered i said Vista search works better than spotlight ~4 months ago and the mac crew ripped me a new one. :rofl:

    I don't think I was one who got on you because one thing I did like with Vista is the search. I think they did a great job there.
