    Open every app on your computer and then do an Expose and take a screenshot. This will get VERY intresting.
    Oh and buy the way, yes, I am running Panther :p

    That isn't all of them but I didn't want to dive in to a bunch of folders, and most of my games run fullscreen so I didn't open them.

    All this depends on how much ram is installed in the Mac and how fast the HDD is. Kinda pointless really. :rolleyes: :)

    True, but I'll play anyhow. Here's 40 apps running concurrently on an 8 year old PowerBook with 512 MB.

    I'm surprised Lacero hasn't participated in this thread yet - I've seen some pretty impressive Expose screengrabs from her in previous threads!

    So far I think I like iGary's the best... although risc's is pretty impressive as well... :cool:

    Here's mine, on an iBook G4 with 768 MB. What amazed me is that I could still work in all the apps, no problem, with a bit of lag, but nothing so annoying that I couldn't get work done. I tried to open a real file in all the apps instead of just opening them up with blank windows. I could have opened a lot more apps, but this is WAY more than I typically work with, so I thought it was impressive enough.

    On my eMac with 1.25GHz G4 and 768MB RAM, I think I had 53 apps running the other day. I have a picture of it that I'll post later! :)

    Wow, this thread is great for anyone wanting to steal some personal information... what programs people have, the name of their local disks, what apps, music, movies they like, their address book contents... ;)

    I could have cheated by opening every folder up and have multiple finder windows open, but i kept it so that one window = one unique app
