Hi all,

First of all, I am hereby renaming the thread and am adding UX-Advise,
even if that won't necessarily gain us more participants in this

It's the OS's domain to (quickly) start applications, and OS's are
pretty good at that. If you want to start anything particularly
quickly on...
Windows 7: you can add it to the task bar, attach it to the start
menu, add it to the desktop
Windows Vista or below: you can add it the Quick Launch bar, attach it
to the start menu, add it to the desktop
Gnome 2: add it to the panel or the desktop
Gnome 3: add it to the dock-like thing in the application overview
Unity: add it to the desktop or the floating panel
KDE: add it to the panel, the desktop, or attach it to the the K menu
(I believe)
Mac OS X: add it to the dock

I really believe, the quick-starter should just go.
