    So if you got used to Spaces and Expose of Snow Leopard, do you have any tips on easily navigating between different windows in Windows 7?

    Is there an app/software that makes something like Expose possible on W7?

    Imagine that the start menu is like expose, and hovering over each program in the start menu is like app expose. Also, I love snapping windows to the side of the monitor, and alt+tab sometimes is useful.

    Vista Flip 3D activator set to a corner
    Switcher
    or just ussing the superbar set to not combine until full which is better than everything

    The superbar is pretty much expose, but enabled all the time.

    Windows key+Tab

    Or Alt+Tab for the old school switching.

    This is why I hate Windows... The little buttons on the taskbar provide no contextual information and the 'Aero Peek' or whatever it is called it too small, slow and quite frankly...useless. Don't even get me started on Flip 3D.

    You just cannot beat the simplicity of Expose. I currently use SmallWindows in Windows 7 to attempt to replicate Expose, but it doesn't work particularly well....

    I used to use alt+tab religiously, but since using Windows 7 I rely on the taskbar for switching. Aero peek is pretty much ideal for me.
