Long ago I began launching apps from my terminal. The number of launcher docks I used shrank quickly to zero and I've never looked back. On Linux I've bound my favorite terminal to ALT+SHIFT+t and have a trivial shell script
"$1" 2>/dev/null &1>2 & disown $!
which I invoke to launch my graphical programs. Launcher programs are overrated; my launcher panel is as long as my memory and the time it takes to find any item is a function of the length of its name (or faster, if it tab completes quickly). I expect most people (where people != users) will prefer this sort of thing once they get used to it.
