xtDesk for power users

I know there are complaints about moving away from the crutch of desktop icons. However, there are times that icons work great. For instance if spend most of your time working on 5 spreadsheets and 5 documents. You can set up an icon that left clicking brings up gnumeric, and right clicking will show a list of the 5 spreadsheets, which can be directly opened in gnumeric. The same with an icon for abiword.

xtdesk supports right click launching of programs.
