On the off-topic of Run-command I want to recommend fbrun to
fluxbox/blackbox/openbox users. I don't ever use the right-click menu
any more; I have fbrun bound to alt-tilde and then type the name of the
application i want into the box (or most of it and press tab). Fbrun
disappears as soon as the application launches. I have xterm bound to
a different keypress for complicated tasks. It just makes launching apps
so much quicker.

Whilst I don't advocate that for users, one of my musician friends is
completely non-technical and thought that taht was the coolest thing
he'd ever seen. He said he hates having to wade through menus and click
icons all the time.
