There is no alias like home

I use open a lot when on my Mac, so
alias open="gnome-open 2>/dev/null >/dev/null" or
alias open="kde-open 2>/dev/null >/dev/null"
makes me feel more at home when in a Linux environment. It makes your desktop environment of choice open the associated application when you open <filename> from the console.
