Speaking only for my own work habits, I've never opened a file using
drag and drop or cut and paste, and only *very* rarely open from the
file manager. In other words, I almost exclusively use Open dialogs.
Do I think this is common? No. Do I think this is uncommon? No.
Honestly, I have no idea either way. :) Are there any studies on this,
because it seems unsafe to make assumptions on the matter.
