Best opening move?

What do you play (as white) as your first move? Please don't say stuff like knight to rook's three or the rook pawn moving or anything like that.

I play e4

1.b3 - best by test

f4 is a really good positional opening.  I love it.  Wild tactical lines are good with e4 or d4 ... ... but then there is a wild tactical variation for every move ... BUT i will still stick to f4 baing a mainly "positional" move.

P-KB3 is the best possible move. Or is it the worst? Anyways, I vote for P-K4.
