5 Best Application Launchers for Ubuntu and Linux Mint - You have options...


Ubuntu (and Linux Mint) is one of the most used Linux distributions worldwide. It is also the reason why it has the maximum number of available programs for itself. Ubuntu’s default application launcher is decent and good enough for most users. The community also provides exciting alternatives. Some of them may not aim for optimal usability but have features that you didn’t know existed. Here are 5 top picks for best application launchers on Ubuntu.

Remember you can install one or two and test and always still use the normal menus. You don't have to move off what you already have, so try out other options.
