I use apropos "keyword". For instance, if I'm looking for a disk partitioning tool, I write apropos disk, and then search for info on commands which are being shown with man. I guess that the difference between apropos and man -k is that the former shows you only commands, while the latter shows you both commands and...well,other stuff.
I use man and didn't know about the -k argument. That will make my life easier, thanks
