    Almost 600 posts and you need to ask this? Dude, you're not a noob anymore. The forum is full of disgruntled Lion users who dislike the new Mission Control app that changed Spaces and Expose'.

    We're all stuck with it. Can't be undone.

    my bad man. i never come to the mac iOS section. i just didn't know if there was a easy checkbox that would expose the desktop in expose.

    Planet earth.
    Yes it can, and all that needs to happen is for Apple to pull its head out of the sand.

    Or it could do like Microsoft does and not just listen to its customers, but also IMPLEMENT their requests. MS is working with developers on Windows 8 and restructuring Metro UI due to a lot of unhappy users. I don't see apple ever doing this.

    Regardless, Mission Control is an absolute nightmare, its 90% of the reason why I won't upgrade.

    I can't see the point of expose. Mission control seems the new and improved expose. Never was keen on expose though it seems I am the only one with this opinion :eek:.

    SL's Expose allows me to see all of my windows in a space with a single click of a button without windows from the same app overlapping. Thus allowing me to move between windows easily.
    Lion's Mission Control stacks windows from the same app making them hard to see.

    You're not the only one with your opinion, but it seems that some of those that didn't use SL's Spaces/Expose like Lion's Mission Control. While those that used SL's Spaces/Expose hate Lion's Mission Control. I'm in the latter group.

    At the moment, I don't see anything Mission Control can do that Spaces/Expose/Dashboard couldn't also do, and do it easier.
