How far do you put the clutch in for gear changes?

I thought everyone puts the clutch to the floor always, I just watched some racing vids that were linked in this forum where it showed the foot work, and the race drivers were putting the clutch to the floor.

The other day my cousin was teaching me proper technique on shifting properly, and he said not to put the clutch in all the way, that it should only go past the friction point.
Since I have been doing this my gear changes feel a lot better as they are quicker yet just as smooth.

So I am wondering why this isnt mentioned more often and curious to know how most people use the clutch.
