Hey all -- just received my MBP a day or two ago, I'm already pimping this thing out with everything I need software wise. I do, however, have some questions coming from a Windows outlook on life that perhaps you all would be able to assist me with: Should I leave programs open when I'm not immediately using them? Some that come to mind in particular: iTunes, Mail, Vienna, Firefox. Basically I find myself doing something in them, and then instead of just hiding them, I tend to CMD-Q out of them. Is this wise or would it be less taxing to simply let them run? And a short corollary to the above: I assume in order for them to update me when I get new emails or RSS-es they'd need to be open in the background? Is there any way to make iTunes take up less space (screen real-estate wise)? I seem to remember some sort of minimized view that I had seen anywhere but can't seem to find out how to access it... How useful is Dashboard really? Perhaps I'm looking at it wrong, but it seems that it takes a while to load up and is distracting. Anything I seem to be missing? Any other cool tips you all have for me? So far I'm very excited and digging Quicksilver very much, especially on a laptop Thanks for all the feedback! GF Edit: Some more! Any way to toggle "stay on top" for iTunes videos/Quicktime? And any way to change the number of lines a page up or page down does?
