The typical computer user interacts with a number of different resources and programs on her computer, all of which are accessed by disparate means, including menus, location bars, icons, shortcut keys, etc. We plan to consolidate these interfaces by creating an application that indexes items in the user's desktop environment (documents, contacts, bookmarks, applications, multimedia, etc.) and lets the user search through these items and manipulate these items with commonly performed actions (open, run, email, chat, etc.).
GNOME Do allows you to quickly search for many items present in your GNOME desktop environment (applications, Evolution contacts, Firefox bookmarks, files, artists and albums in Rhythmbox, Pidgin buddies, etc.) and perform commonly used actions on those items (Run, Open, Email, Chat, Play, etc.). GNOME Do is inspired by Quicksilver and GNOME Launch Box.
GNOME Do is not a search tool. If you know what you're looking for and what you want to do with it, Do will help you do it quickly.
GNOME Do is not only for GNOME. Although it was created by a GNOME lover, Do runs on KDE and other common environments.
