I was in need of a launcher that I could see at a bit of a distance for a living room media PC. I was using Nexus, which is absolutely beautiful and very customizable, but it's running on an older PC and I would have problems with hang ups or Nexus crashing, probably due to it's special effects. SE-TrayMenu is simpler, yet can be modified to look pretty nice as well. It is incredibly stable, doesn't crash or hang, and if you want a nice roll-over effect you can modify the Font Sizes for both the display and AccessRollover. Make the rollover font 2 points larger and Bold, and you achieve a similar special effect that Nexus and others offer! Nexus probably works fine on a newer, faster PC, but if you want something a bit more basic and reliable, TrayMenu fits the bill nicely!
The one thing I miss and would like to see added is the ability to change the Icon for a program. For example, you can link to folders and launch them, but they are all going to have the same Windows Folder Icon. (Of course, loading different Icons may add to the overhead on the CPU and RAM, so it may be a good thing - or not.) That's the only downside I see to this program, and it's minor since the Text displayed can be edited to tell you what folder is what, etc.
