    I think I use this program more than anything else on my thumb drive. I use the version. My favorite features are the hiding and blacklist. Now I can make as many applications dissapear at once, without really closing them. After I hide them, you can't find them anywhere unless if you know the keyboard shortcut, or use the task manager.

    My only complaint: "Don't Panic!" should be written in larger and friendlier letters.

    Great, it was exactly what I was looking for. And it is Open Source!
