    My Expose suddenly has turned choppy. I'm have a D2.0 with 1.5gigs of Ram. I used the top command in terminal to see if anything looked strange and it shows 1 program stuck, but I can't figure out which one. Any ideas? See attached file. Thanks.

    I don't know which one is stuck, but have you tried restarting or loggging out? A simple restart usually clears up things liket this.

    Your top output doesn't show any programs "stuck". Everything looks normal.

    had you been running some shareware or freeware programs earlier? You could have been experiencing memory leakage. You can easily fix that by running a program like iphoto or photoshop that use large amounts of memory then free it properly when terminated.
