Why does everyone fill with co2 first. You're hooking up to co2 when you're done anyway right? So why not let it fill for a few seconds, then vent a few times. Instead of the extra step at the beginning?

Really dont "Fill" with CO2 just a few seconds burst . The beer gets racked under a blanket of CO2 no chance of O2 being mixed with the beer.

If my beer is in a carboy I use the auto syphon and just rack into the keg. If its in a conical then I just dump right from the port into the keg hook up the co2 purge a few time and were done

Just precaution for oxidation- many will just purge the head space a few times after transfer. This is safe as well, but doing it before transferring ensures the heavier CO2 creates a blanket over your beer as you fill.
