Me neither ... I use Run rarely .. prefer debugging from console :)
So must used by me is Compile (I use Build when I touch some of my packages or changed lazarus production version).


For me "Run" is the menu where "Compile" commands are. Menus are most of time accessed by mouse, and for that "Run" commands on main toolbar are accessed quickly, but there are no "Compile" commands on toolbar (hint). 

Given that many people see the "Run" menu where "Compile" commands are, I wonder if we should rename it to "Compile", or even doing some justice to "Compile & Run" ;)
