Input "o" on the selected buffer's line in the *Buffer List* buffer. This will 
open the selected buffer in the "o"ther window – I most often do not have so 
many buffers open…

Another option is to C-x o (i.e. other-window) and then make a choice in the 
mini-buffer. Typing at least the buffer's first character(s) should enable you 
to complete the buffer's name and this buffer will take over the window from 
you started to switch to another buffer. Of course you leave out the first 
character(s) and press TAB that you can pick an entry from the *completions* 
list – which will disappear after.
