I agree. 

  C-c a T s TAB RET

bring's all my started task on screen. I use several seperate TODO-files
- one for each customer and one as my personal organizer.

I only recently started to use the agenda. And I'm starting to love it
:) It's so painless to find something, annotate, toggle TODO states,
clock... to do anything in those files without ever visiting them. Wow!

TAB (other window) and RET (current window) bring you to the file itself
if desired.
