This seems to me to be a sloppy way to work.  If all these apps are
doing significant amounts of work, each one is going to run very slowly.
More than a few simultaneous compiles and you're just thrashing.

I have a fast computer and have selected apps that start quickly.
I find it neater and cleaner to open and close the handful of things
I'm working on, and instead run hundreds of tasks serially rather
than in parallel.

I think this is just sloppiness.
