    I made the stupid mistake of installing Lion without reviewing its failures.
    And, I guess I am stuck with Lion because I want iCloud when released.

    So, I am offering a cash reward for each fix or third party app that fixes my 2 big Lion fails.

    1. Give me back SL Expose - the F3 keyboard that shows all my active windows for all applications. Mission control is useless for me.
    2. Give me back the SL Address Book - with 3 panels - or a third party app like BusyCal is to iCal.

    Oh man, am I stupid.
    I installed Lion without enough research and thought iCloud only worked with Lion. I am going to shut off my computer and go for a beer before I do anything else stupid today.

    There's no evidence that this is true. Currently, Apple is only putting support in Lion.

    If you have a trackpad, app expose might be of some use to you. It's the 4 fingers down gesture.

    This may help: when the Mission Control screen is up - the one with all the various app windows - hover the mouse over any window, when it is highlighted by a blue ring, press the space bar. It'll show you a zoomed view of just that window. Press space bar again to unzoom. You can zoom in/out of any window you hover over (indicated by the blue ring).

    That is nothing but speculation at this time and should not be passed off as fact.

    I think I have found a replacement for the Snow Leopard Expose:

    I am trying Witch by Many Tricks.

    Now If I could only find a fix for Lion Address Book - just like the 3 panel Snow Leopard one.

    I think it would be absurd for Apple to not support iCloud in Snow Leopard. They're giving support for Windows Vista, but not Snow Leopard?
