Keypresses? Given that both both Do and KRunner integrate with indexing frameworks, so can show a pdf anywhere on your system, I would only have to type "foo<enter>" (4 letters) for Do/KR to get the equivalent of typing "locate output.pdf | xargs evince &<enter>" (36 characters) in bash, a factor of 9 difference.

More likely "evince `locate output.pdf`&" (yes, fragile and doesn't handle locate errors), and far more likely I know which file I want and can use tab completion (yes, I know it works in Krunner et. al. as well) to save key strokes, but yeah, that's a point.
