Thanks Dariush for doing the evaluation work.

While Launchpad is not perfect, I would like to confirm on this thread too what Dariush mentioned as well, there is a migration script and process to move from Launchpad to StoryBoard which I think is a big advantage.

Thanks and Best Regards,

This has hampered some automation efforts and in fact was one of the motivators for the SB teams position of API first.  The situation with Storyboard allows users with API capabilities to solve their own problems regarding UI limitations.  This is not possible with LaunchPad.
