i have been using alunch on a computer at work for a while (the computer had stuffit expander, so i was able to extract alunch from the sitx archive). it really is the best menubar launcher for os x, really. you can launch any type of file on your system and have full control over the categorization of the files/applications you decide to place in the menu bar. meaning, if you have oh say, over 150 applications, you do not have to scroll up and down a huge drop-down menu to get to your chosen file, you just arrange your categories/folders in alunch in the most efficient way desired. the only thing that stops me [and a whole lot of others] from using it on there machines at home, is that alunch is distributed as a .sitx archive. most people stopped using stuffit products a long time ago, for good reason (they are bloated pieces of shareware rubbish) and there is no way on earth most people are going to install an extra compression/ decompression utility solely for the purpose of unzipping one application. if the author changed from sitx to zip, bz2 or just a plain dmg, i am certain there would be a much larger and more satisfied user base. until then i will have to stick with himmelbar on my mac at home. i am just letting the developer know that this is a fantastic piece of software, but he is really limiting his potential user-base by sticking to the sitx format. otherwise, from the amount of time i have spent using it at work, i can say this is simply the best menubar launcher out there. please, change to a different compression format.
