As for WW2, the honours would have to be shared between the USSR and the US.

Well, given that 5 million German troops were lost on the eastern front against Soviet Russia and ~800 000 were lost on the western front against allied troops (also british, canadian, etc.), many would say a greater part of the honour would belong to USSR.

Thx for the tip, I will look it up.

I tried several, including:

gnome-launch-box -box

which is nice, but not as configurable as slickrun. The Gnome panel applet for launching stuff is also nice, but not really as convenient as SR. I guess any of these combined with a couple of scripts in the system path would do the trick, but not nearly as easy as it would be doing it the SR way.
