A random thought

Without Windows there would be no innovation, right?

[Thanks, Stefan]


Which reminds me ...

I see just one product by Apple itself on one side and three products from third parties on the other....
it seems to me that microsoft is still the most democratic party, isn't it? ;)

I tried out "Winplosion", and it's pretty close, except I noticed 2 flaws in about 2 minutes.

1) You can't "un-Expose" by accessing the hot corner. This means that if you accidentally hit the hot spot, you have to stop to think about what window you were just using. Obviously, not the end of the world, but cases some cognitive disruption.

2) Second, your desktop icons and taskbar disappear when you do an "expose". Maybe this is intended as a "feature", but it makes my whole desktop experience feel fragmented.

The animation is pretty smooth though, and the shrunken windows don't look too bad. They may actually get my 10 bucks.

Windows Exposer is crap. Unless you like to feel like you're having a seizure every time you want to change windows.

Gabriele, you are missing a timeline. ;-)

When using two monitors, windowsexplorer produces a weired flicker-effect on the second monitor.
Monitor one shows thunderbird, x-lite and firefox. Monitor 2 is blank. Whenever I know press F9, WindowsExplorer shows all applications on Monitor 1 but seems to swit through them on Monitor 2. Not so nice.

Poor windows users -- have to pay for such a feature :->

You pay for one yearly Mac OS X update :-)
