I just hit the "windows button" and then type what application I want to a appear.
No drop down list, no waiting for icons to re-arrange, and no trying to hit tiny rectangles at the far edges of my screen.

I prefer one that I can use efficiently rather then one that is something I have to look at and hunt around icons or lists of text.
The 'activities' switcher is actually quick enough that nowadays I rarely actually can select windows faster then having to hunt around on a list of open windows even if I do feel like using my mouse. :)

Don't want to be difficult here, but kinda isn't. When I'm sitting back in my chair, with my hands _not_ at my keyboard, then the graphical UI + mouse is it.
