Can't seem to like exposé anymore.

    Overall, the upgrade to snow leopard seems alright, but while I do think there are some improvements, I just can't get used to the way it now behaves. I loved the way exposé behaved up until the release of snow leopard.

    +Names appear under each window, rather than only when you hover on them.
    +It shows hidden windows.
    +Dock filters windows.

    -Huge waste of screen real estate compared to the old exposé.
    -Grid makes it harder to find a specific window. Windows aren't in alphabetical order, nor do they shrink to a position relative to where they were originally.
    -The removal of relative window sizes makes the bigger windows (And usually more important) harder to read. And it can be disorienting to see some windows 100% their original size, while others are 25% as big as they were pre-exposé.
    -Less smooth.

    I really wish there was an option to trigger the old exposé behavior back :(
    Anybody else have any thoughts?

    Okay, I can agree with you on that. In Leopard it was easer to find a window by its size more quickly than its content.

    I also hate the blue border, I wish it took the set highlight color.

    Otherwise, I like the new features, especially showing the minimized windows.

    much easier to search by relative size imo for quick finding
