    I'm trying to see if Win7 has a feature that all the current open websites show up like thumbnails like in Expose. The Win7 features "Shake, Peek, Snap" don't sound exactly what I am looking for.

    And any chance they have a general ZOOM feature like in Leopard when you hold CTRL and the mouse wheel also?

    Thanks so much guys!

    if you click the application icon in the dock, all the windows in that application will be shown

    quite a nice implementation. if you hover over the window you will see it on the desktop as well

    Windows 7 in some versions does have Flip or Flip 3D - whatever it's called. Win+Tab activates it, I use it when I'm in Windows sometimes, but it's no where near as good as Expose imo.

    There's a free expose "clone" for Windows that I use called Switcher. It defaults to Tab + Tilde key and does the job quite well. Expose is still more polished, but Switcher isn't too shabby.

    Switcher

    In terms of expose you can download Switcher. It's free and works almost the same as Expose. Imo Expose is a lot better, but hey Switcher beats the pants off of Flip 3D and is at least similar to Expose.

    As for the zoom feature, the only thing that I found (as was mentioned above) was the the magnifier.

    Guys, I was able to get stacked 3d-animated windows on my Win7 and it looked quite nice. I was able to navigate between them with the mouse scroll wheel but this was all done by clicking the middle mouse button in Air Mouse app.

    But I have no idea how to activate this feature normally... or does it only come from the Air Mouse server running?

    Any ideas?
