Whenever I see various Mac tutorials, tips, or suggestions, I usually see people launch applications by going to the folder (e.g. Applications --> Utilities --> Terminal). I've always been perplexed by this, because I have always launched my applications using Spotlight, and find that I can launch applications much more quickly this way (less than a second). My question is: how do you usually launch applications? Edit: and I see that I've forgotten to include Dock. I suppose that can go under Other.
