KDE allows for artibrary commands as well:
Accessibility > Input Actions > New Action
And then set the Action to any Command or URL you want.
It isn't universal in the way XBindKeys is, so if you switch desktops a lot XBindKeys would definitely be the way to go.
Being a fairly typical desktop user though, I don't switch desktops much. All of my most commonly used apps are launched from keypresses (including some terminal scripts that I never see the output from but do their jobs nicely).
