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.
