I know I do. At work I use windows and I don't have spaces. Here's a screenshot. I would never allow that on my Mac. My Mac wouldn't allow me to have that happen! lol

Umm actually you can do that on a Mac, it's just that we have expose so it's a lot easier to switch between programs.

I know. I use spaces on my Mac, but at work I use windows and I'm running at least 6 programs at 1 time and I wish I had spaces!

I guess I'm just spoiled when I'm at home

I think spaces is fine if you're utilizing different desktops for different types of apps, such as media on one screen, disk utilities on another, office work on the next etc.. I do this with Linux. But I have to be honest, I think the point is kind of silly in that you absolutely can not work with 6 different apps all at once, so the idea of needing them all up front at once is really redundant. Therefore, there's nothing wrong with the ol' minimize button, and doing a good ol' alt+tab to get to the app you need, or simply clicking on the app in the taskbar.

Personally speaking, I hate keeping more apps than necessary, open, on any desktop. I like screen real estate/space. But that's just me. I also do this in order to preserve system resources. Again, that's just me.

I am totally OCD and love having 1 app in 1 Space. But that is also just me. I do miss the show desktop button in Windoze, but I keep 1 Space free at all times just for that purpose. LOL.

There are virtual desktop programs for Windows too. In fact, I believe it's included in Microsoft's "Power Toys" package. I remember using something like that back in the Windows NT 4 days.

EDIT: Here's a nice-looking open source program - http://virtuawin.sourceforge.net/

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

You can show desktop via expose. There is an option where you can apply one key for that sole purepose. - F6 for me
