//"Instead of hunting through drop-down menus to find application commands, Ubuntu’s Head-Up Display lets users type what they want to do into a search box."//

One of the reason why I loved Launchy[1] so much. That little program drastically reduced the need to use the mouse and launch/find any application with just a few keystrokes.

Even, Ubuntu 11 has similar functionality with Unity. But,it's searching capability is little disappointing, though.
