    I'm pretty sure that the current method to get 10.5 style Exposé in 10.6 will not work for 10.7 Lion.

    This means that, for those of us that prefer the old 10.5 style Exposé from Leopard have two options:
    1) Whine and Complain
    2) Start making our own 10.5 style Exposé clone

    While Option 1 is easier and will happen not matter what, I think that Option 2 is a better solution to the problem given that there are already a number of Exposé Clones for Windows Vista, 7 and Linux. Unfortunately I only have a little programming experience and cannot make a robust Exposé clone; however, there are a lot of Macrumors Members with a good amount of programming experience that might be able and willing to take this challenge on.

    Personally, I would be willing to pay between $20 and $40 for a good 10.5 Exposé clone that works with 10.7 because a proper Exposé is critical to my work flow and I would like to be able to enjoy the benefits and improvements of 10.7 while maintaining a 10.5 Exposé experience. Given the large number of people who supported the previous 10.6 mod/hack I imagine that there is a marginally decent market for a good 10.5 clone.

    The purpose of this topic/post is to signal interest in a 10.5 style Exposé clone for 10.7.

    It is NOT intended to start an argument on 10.5 vs. 10.6 vs. 10.7. There is already a topic with tons of posts going back and forth (see link at top). Some people like 10.5, some people like 10.6, some will like 10.7, some don't care. There are a number of us that love 10.5 but hate 10.6 and we would like to have a discussion on bringing 10.5 style Exposé to 10.7 without a big argument about which is better.

    YES, I know that 10.7 is out yet and we don't know that Exposé will be like. But we can be reasonably certain that the overall style of 10.6 with grid-aligned, similar sized, large spaced snap-shot views will be preserved.

    Nice foresight

    If only we had know it would have been so much worse than SL...
    Does anyone know if anything like this exists?

    Maybe I'm wrong but Witch only works with the keyboard I think. There's no trackpad input?
