That looks really useful. Good suggestion.

Edit: Impressions:

Good:
* Overall very minimalistic and simple
* Fast and responsive even on a system that's running quite a bit. No hesitation.
* The "Shade" button to make the application flatted but still remain visible is cool
* The Processes window is minimalistic and simple, but does what I need it to do (jump to file location / terminate)
* At 1.6 megs of RAM and 500k disk space this is a very lean program.
* Program search included in DL
* A good set of easy to use network tools

Not great:
* Search output is a text-only output for some reason
* No Registry search
* Screencap tool is very Spartan
* Can't change background color even though that's an option in settings
* Few other tools here on the site (maybe not as fast and sleek as this program) that can do a whole lot more

Overall I can see some users who need what this program offers getting a lot out of it.
