          Re: Portability?
          The short answer is no, necause this app heavily relies on
          the Cocoa framework for displaying, and also Carbon
          (essentially for key grabbing). Porting would in fact mean

          Now, it may be possible to port it for use with openStep, but
          I really doubt it.

          This application sure looks promising. I despise (as much as it seems you do) pannels and launchers of any kind, and this seems the perfect solution, both beautiful and powerful.

          But... I use GNU/Linux.

          I understand that MacOS X is quite close to the *NIX systems. Is there any chance of porting this application to other enviroments (such as mine)?

          I'd really find that useful.
