There should also be key binding within dired for opening files
"blindly". For a long time, within dired, I had `C-u RET' open file in a
system-registered app.

    (defun my-dired-find-file (&optional prefix)
      (interactive "P")
      (if prefix
          (org-open-file (dired-get-file-for-visit) 'system)

    (define-key dired-mode-map "\r" 'my-dired-find-file)

When I don't have above snippet installed, I do the following.

On Windows, 

    & open


    ! open

On Linux, I can do,

    C-c C-m C-l

It would be wonderful if I can just rely on Emacs to abstract out the OS
I am working on.
