Wouldn’t it be great if I could close or minimize some windows, when I’m in Expose mode? Now I think of Expose as of a kind of administration for all deskop windows, so I want to have more possibilities to deal with these windows. 2. When I’m searching for a window, I don’t know, if this window is somethere in the background, or it is minimized in the dock. So I press F9, search for the window, and if I don’t find it, I have to press F9 again and look in the dock (my dock is always hidden, due to save some workplace). Wouldn’t it be good, if during the Expose-Mode I could see the dock with the minimized windows there? Greetings from Anton 2003-12-06 8:26 pm …does not work with RealONE player! Nor does it work with the F1-F6 keys on my iBook. Also. networking with a windows workgroup is flakey alsmost to th epoint of being useless! I hope they fix 🙂 2003-12-06 8:46 pm …does not work with RealONE player! That’s really weird! Can anyone explain that? Neither MPlayer, nor Windows Media Player, nor Quicktime have this problem. Anton 2003-12-06 8:47 pm Mayve cause they are not native quartz aplications. 2003-12-06 9:02 pm Mayve cause they are not native quartz aplications. What in God’s name are native quartz applications? I have applications, which do not have the same problems, although they were written, before the name Quartz ever existed! 2003-12-06 9:44 pm > What in God’s name are native quartz applications?

I think he might … maybe there are not written using Cocoa. 2003-12-06 10:50 pm Also. networking with a windows workgroup is flakey alsmost to th epoint of being useless! But then again windows workgroup has always been falky almost to the point of being useless in all windows environment… I don’t really like to flame, but it really sucks usually.. takes a minute to search for shares/computers, in which time it makes the window totally unresponsive, sometimes even the whole explorer.exe is unresponsive until some timeout value is reached. 2003-12-06 11:39 pm I agree… Windows networking is always sucky. It works by far the best in Linux (much more responsive than using windows lol), with Windows second and OSX last. OSX is fine if you actaully find the computers (which it took about 2 weeks of random setting configuration) and also the fact if you are on a wifi network with an iBook it tells you the server does not respond and then asks you again, and again, and again, and again… even when you press ‘disconnect’. Very annoying. Having said that, Expose is excellent and OSX is probably the best OS for day to day use out of them all I’ve used. 2003-12-07 2:06 am The fact that RealOne doesn’t work with expose has to do with the kind of window it is, I believe. For some silly reason, they made it a window like the character pallette (which, if you’ll do expose when it’s open, will also disappear). Probably also has to do with the fact that if you close the player window, it’ll quit. I’m not sure about this part at all, but I think they might’ve made it that type of window in order to be able to apply their own UI. In any event, it’s just a problem with the type of window Real made the player. You’ll notice that the “clip info” window is a normal one- and thus does not disappear when you use expose. 2003-12-07 8:28 pm Phew. I thought it was just thought MS Workgroups were flakey on my machines. Its actually kinda funny — the most stable SMB share I’ve got is the one exported by my Linux server. 2003-12-08 8:59 am If OSX uses SAMBA why on earth would it be less functional on OSX. Did they mess it up somehow? What did they do to it that makes it so different. Is it the GUI that breaks it?
