10.4: Stagger startup items for less system impact
Authored by: triplef on Jul 19, '06 02:02:08AM
This method launches one app after the previous one finished launching, so no delay is necessary.
This isn't the case here using Mac OS X 10.4.7. On my system, "open" returns immediately, i.e. before the opened app finishes bouncing in the Dock.

Using multiple Finder actions to open applications in Automator worked though. Using this method the apps are launched sequentially.
