A bunch of the early reviews around here said that it takes time to learn and appreciate Mission Control, but once you learn it is better than Spaces. Judging by the vitriol being hurled its way it seems that there are a bunch of people who have yet to cross the learning curve and I must admit that I'm one of them. I find myself always hitting Ctrl+1 for Mail and Ctrl+2 for Chrome but those don't seem to work if an application is full screen or if I quit Chrome (set to Desktop 2) and then open something else on Desktop 2 (and after having re-opened Chrome). I like to have all my apps on separate Desktops (or Spaces). In an ideal world for me I would have Mail on 1, Chrome on 2, Safari on 3 and about 3 other applications on the next 3. Then any new application would create a Desktop for it and if I quit an application it would remove an application. So for the experts, is this possible? If not, how are you using Mission Control. I really hate it at the moment. I hope that with time I'll learn to use it and appreciate extra functionality, but for the moment I can't see anything that Mission Control offers that I didn't get with Spaces+Expose. I'm not like some of the others declaring Lion a failure b/c of this. I'll learn to live with it but I'm hoping some experts around here could help me adapt a little quicker. Thanks.
