Personally I use xmonad with xfce-appfinder as a program launcher (though in all practicality all of my most used applications are all keybound to launch ie: super+w for my webbrowser, super+m for my mail client, super+t for my terminal, super+f for my file manager, etc etc etc, and super+space for the generic application launcher). Other choices are AwesomeWM, i3, SpectrumWM, e17, and arguably tmux.
You forgot your fedora.
Couple of things..
Fedora ships with gnome3, a standard stacking desktop paradigm interface with a few niceties like a launcher and dynamic workspaces, but it's still an example of an old idea.
Xmonad can run on anything with xorg, c, and haskell, not just linux. Runs fine on bsd, osx, and several others.
There are other options for windows as well, you're just obviously far more limited given the operating system. --- -SNES- Hasta Pasta! Sieh nur wie ich laufen kann... Mich fängst du nicht, ich bin der Lebkuchenmann!
