    I still think this is leftovers of Jaguar. Makes more sense that way anyhow. Why would Apple go to random spots and change the design for Tiger? (there's also one of these designs in the fax page) Especially when this is a preview of exposé for those coming from jaguar to panther.

    Sorry guys, but I really think these were just overlooked during the transition to the panther design.

    yeah, thats leftover jaguar textures.

    Go compare it to your 10.2 discs/box.

    Tiger box/cd is more of an X-men logo clone than animal related.

    Can anyone do a quick list of why/how they use Exposé? I've been a WindowShade user from OS 9, now OS X days, and have never really given it a shot. Thanks,

    Why/how we use Expose? Are you serious?
    Alright, well I use F9 to show all of my open Windows when I have a lot going on and one's been bumped to the back and I want to find it quickly (although honestly I think I use cmd-Tab more), F10 when I'm working in Photoshop or Safari where there are a lot of different app Windows overlapping and alt-tab doesn't really do anything, and I use F11 because I save a lot of files to the desktop by instinct, then drag them to the folder I want them to be in. I find it easier then using the Save dialogue. I also use F11 when I want to say eject my iPod or a CD, etc.
    Basically, I use one of those three buttons at least once every fifteen minutes.

    Its basically like on Windows you have the taskbar which shows every open program by showing its name, except this way is MUCH cooler...

    whatever that is it looks horrible. The white text over that background is hideous. but thats just my opinion.

    No way is this Tiger. It's just a leftover from Jaguar. Since when do tigers have spots?

    Here's to hoping they re-design their gawd-awful ugly widgets. :cool:

    The widgets have kinda grown on me, they're simple and easily distinguishable. Not Apple's finest work but hey. It's easily compensated for by the brilliance of some of the third party widgets available. Looking forward to seeing what people come up with once Tiger is actually released!

    I simply find it more convenient. I set the F11(? I'm on a windows machine at the moment) anyways, the key that displays all windows to the scroll wheel on my mouse. Now whenever I click the scroll wheel, I can see every window I have open. I find it's very convenient for switching between apps and such. Sometimes at work I'll click my scrollwheel and then remember it's windows and be disapointed/annoyed.
