Windows: If you’re envious of the Mac Launchpad but in no hurry to change operating systems, XLaunchpad brings the experience to Windows.

Check out the video above to see the application in action.

XLaunchpad [via Addictive Tips]

Jason Fitzpatrick is a warranty-voiding DIYer who spends his days cracking opening cases and wrestling with code so you don't have to. If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.

    Just did a virustotal scan, both xwidget and xlaunchpad have a file with a warning, but 42 out of 43 scanners say its clean.

    XWidget, gallery.exe, BC.Heuristic.Trojan.SusPacked.BF-6.A
    XLaunchPad.exe, Heur.Suspicious

    I have only one problem with this program…
    I cant seem to find any multi-monitor support..
    I’d much rather have this on my second monitor than my primary.
    If anyone has a solution to this problem please throw me an e-mail right away.. Thanks

    Experts – I would love to try this; however, I am getting virus flag from Comodo, too.

    Did you guys scanned/confirmed this stuff before posting? Not good rep for you guys if people get infected.

    just my to cents….
