    I bought and fixed a laptop. As I was testing it I installed Fedora 12 and thought having multiple desktops was pretty neat and I wished Mac had that.
    Obviously it does.

    How do I get the Spaces icon back in my Dock?
    I don't know how it disappeared but its gone.

    EDIT: sorry I put this in the wrong forum - feel free to move it.

    "Spaces" is located in the Applications/Utilities folder. Drag it to your Dock from there.

    You can also invoke Spaces with a hot-corner (my preference is the upper-left corner).

    Applications > Utilities > Spaces - drag it back to the Dock.

    Spaces can also be activated by a hot corner or mouse button.

    I think I got it.
    How do I configure spaces? Hold down a key while I click on it?

    System Preferences > Exposé & Spaces or do you mean activate by configure?

    I think I'm fuzzy on how Exposé works.
    I have SPaces working the way I want it - click on the icon in the Dock and I can bring up my four desktops.
    Something that I really liked in my Linux/Gnome/KDE days.

    Basically, Expose is a windows management system that lets you view all your open windows in a particular space and lets you choose which one you want to use (as well as minimised windows if you're using Snow Leopard).

    and one can go to each corner of the screen to quickly switch - got it.
    I'm going to disable it for now. I'm still making the switch. :D
    But Spaces is working just fine.
