ExposÈ Exposed

One of the much-hyped features of Apple – Mac OS X Panther is the ExposÈ window management feature. After playing around with Panther for a few hours, I’ve come to the conclusion that like the Dock, ExposÈ is useful for the average Mac user – one who has gone up the learning curve somewhat but is still not pushing the limits of the machine. I still think power users and heavy multitaskers still need something better. The first screen shot below shows my desktop with ExposÈ. The windows are getting smaller and more diffcult to manage if you have more than 5 applications open; they’re even beginning to look like minimized dock windows. Also, the aesthetics of messy desktops does not appeal to me. Compare with the second picture that uses Virtual Desktop.

Panther does, however, have one nice feature – not only does it mark the return of Finder labels, but it remembers the Finder labels used by the Classic MacOS (9 and earlier).
