GNOME-Do Alternative: Kupfer

Filed under
Software

In case you haven't noticed, we're pretty big fans of Gnome-Do around these parts. However, there's a new little app that, in some ways, might just be drinking Do's milkshake. Its Kupfer, and no, I have no idea how thats pronounced.

First Impressions

One of the first things that I thought when I ran Kupfer was, "Holy crap, full visual navigation of the application menu?!" Well, sort of. It runs all your apps, alphabetically, without categories. Still, kinda cool in case you don't remember of the name of some new application you installed. When you first open Kupfer, using ctrl space, you can immediately press down to get a whole list of basically infinite programs, commands, and files, that load as you scroll, without even typing anything.

That was kinda strange, kinda neat, but it was fast...
