    So from what OSX is telling me, there is no way to assign a keyboard shortcut to open an app, huh? I'd love to have a shortcut key to pop open a terminal window like I can do in linux (gnome). Is there no easy way to accomplish this?

    cmd+space

    type the first few letters of the app,

    cmd+enter




    or you could try quicksilver

    I highly agree, and second this option. Give Quicksilver a chance and change your Mac experience for forever.

    If all you're interested in is app launching, Quicksilver will probably be overkill for you. You might try Namely, however.
