    Dashboard "Ripple" effect?
    What is this famous "Ripple" effect that Dashboard has that everyone says is so cool. I don't see any ripple effect when using Dashboard or moving widgets around.

    The Ripple effect is only available on Video Cards that support Core Image. Your Mac Mini's Video Card (ATI 9200) is not in the list of supported video cards.

    You need an ATI 9600 or Higher or an Nvidia 5200 or higher.

    Yeah, don't worry about it. The novelty wears off, I promise.

    Yep, a bit like when you first switch and sit there watching the genie effect

    Ooooo!
    Window goes down...
    Window goes up!!
    Window goes down...
    Window goes up!!
    Window goes down...
    Window goes up!!

    Eventually the fascination does wear off a bit

    Cheer yourself up by clicking on the shrink in dock yellow button in a window item whilst holding the shift key pressed in, just as cool. :cool:
