Scripting my application launch process

Every day for work, there’s several applications I always use. The other day, I put together a quick and dirty bash script for opening all of them at once.

I’m terribly inexperienced at this, so don’t poke fun, only offer good suggestions for improvement…

[sourcecode language=”bash”]
#!/bin/bash

# Open all of the requisite applications
echo ‘Opening Chrome’
`open /Volumes/Macintosh HD/Applications/Google Chrome.app/`
echo ‘Opening Skype’
`open /Volumes/Macintosh HD/Applications/Skype.app/`
echo ‘Opening Sparrow’
`open /Volumes/Macintosh HD/Applications/Sparrow.app/`
echo ‘Opening Linkus’
`open /Volumes/Macintosh HD/Applications/Linkinus.app/`
echo ‘Opening Adium’
`open /Volumes/Macintosh HD/Applications/Adium.app/`
[/sourcecode]
