What do you use to open files?

This is a genuine question.  I have the feeling that anyone who has
evern used TAB after C-x C-f will know what is going on, as the
completions feature is the same everywhere in Emacs.  But I learned
about TAB after C-x C-f in 1989 when using Jove, so my memory about
my own feelings after C-x b might well be wrong.  (In fact, I think
for some years I thought that C-x b isn't really useful, since I
could use C-x C-f with much the same effect: I came to the existing
buffer, at the same spot.  I recall thinking why is there C-x b if C-x
C-f is also fast?  This was still using Jove.)

Silence is foo!
