This is just a curiousity. I am wondering how others start up their audio apps. Of course there is a plethora of ways, including:

  1. Terminal, duh, I wanna watch all those warnings fly by...
  2. Unity launcher/desktop launcher
  3. Dash
  4. Shortcut key
  5. HUD


I've become quite fond of using HUD for this. Since the menu items available for the HUD is presumably much smaller than the search base for Dash, I find tapping Alt and typing either Rhythm... or Pitho... tends to find it extremely fast, and it's always the first item.

I'd like to know if there are other interesting ways, or just what other thoughts people have on the subject.
