View Full Version : The only thing I miss about the XP GUI

is the task bar. It is very convenient to be able to see that you've got 2 Word docs open + an Excel + plus calander and a email message you're working on. And then most importanty just click to instantly bring that task to the active window.

Am I missing a feature or setting on OS X ?

I'm still running Panther because Tiger still has the sleep function hosed up - but I don't think Tiger does this either.

Same here, never looked back since.

The main differences seems to be the way Mac users & Windows users work.
With windows users, working with a full screen window is normal so a Task bar is a necessity. Mac users normally have their windows just large enough to see everything and can often just click the window they want. Exposť comes to the fore when that isn't possible.
No right or wrong, just different, although as an ex windows user I never had anything full screen :-)

I use this method, which it very similar to the Apple + Tab feature, which does really bring about the app that you need to pull up right away, but this way below works!

expose under system preferences

A feature like Expose should have been basic computing years ago. It makes so much sense now that it's revealed. The Windows clones of Expose are garbage. Apple leads the herd once again.
