Well, in WinXP I've (almost) stopped using the start menu after
In Win7 I use the start menu once in a week at most, while I use the...
uhm... can't remember the name, but, anyway, that text box that appears
when you press the Win key (and that is somewhat similar in behavior to
Launchy (and yes it's included in the start menu, but I don't consider
it really part of the start menu)) and, sometimes, the desktop.
The start menu is just slow when you can press a key or a combination of
keys and then the first chars of the name of the application that you want.
