    i have button 3 set to Exposé all windows, button 4 set to Spaces and just hit F12 for Dashboard.

    i love having Exposé set for the scrollball. when im using Windows i always find myself pressing the scroller and expect all the windows to go flying out :D

    Mouse 3 is set to "button 3". I use it in Safari to open links in a new tab, amongst other things.

    Mouse 4 is set to nothing, because I used to trigger that thing by accident every time. It was driving me nuts. (Yes, I'm using a Mighty Mouse)

    Button 3 is set to ...err.... 'button 3' ;)

    Button 4 is set to Expose - all windows

    Back before I got my Mighty Mouse, I was using a 6-button rodent, and 4 was set to Expose - show desktop, 5 to Expose all windows, 6 to Expose - application windows.

    Logitech MX Revolution. I consider five buttons the minimum acceptable on Windows, to have forward / backward buttons. And with Apple's Expose and Dashboard features, I think that contrary to Apple's aesthetics, even more buttons are better.

    And unfortunately the Apple mouse is only a four button mouse (left, right, ball, squeeze), so it's not a good solution for me.
