I'll second open(1) as a great all purpose launcher. In terminal open <filename> generally does the right thing, even with directories. From shell scripts and (especially) emacs, it's really handy. Back in the Sun, AIX, then Linux days, it was necessary to supply a "helper application" for each mime-type. Now open suffices for all of them. Swanky.

Other than that, I use Spotlight. I've tried quicksilver and got fed up when they required up-to-date checks for beta versions. That's crap.
