Alfred and Launchbar

Regarding Alfred 0.9, Shawn Blanc wrote:

I’m getting ahead of myself here, but if I had to sum up what I see as the main difference between Alfred and LaunchBar it’s that Alfred appeals to a broader range of nerds, and LaunchBar appeals to a smaller range of persnickety power users.

I would say the main difference is that Alfred is built up from a simple foundation, while LaunchBar is build out from a complex core. We’re making similar points: broader appeal comes with simplicity.
