Very nice skinable application launcher.

From the developer, “8start Launcher is a free portable application launcher, I created 8start Launcher because I believe there should be a convenient way to access application than using windows start menu, quick launch and desktop. Windows desktop look messy if too many shortcuts in the desktop, windows start menu become hard to access if too many applications installed in the computer, windows quick launch not suitable to handle too many shortcuts.

Now you can make your desktop wallpaper never be blocked by the icons, you never have to search program shortcuts in start menu. You can divide different programs into categories and groups, and access it by a single click.”

Editor’s Note:
Many great skins for 8 Launcher can be found on the author’s site here.
