Now that folks here have had a chance to use OS X Leopard for a few weeks, we thought we would do a quick update on a feature call "Spaces" which we found surprisingly useful.
Since we are constantly shuffling between about a dozen different open windows (Dreamweaver, Photoshop, various browsers, email, etc...), our desktop gets pretty crowded. Spaces is a feature which allows the user to logically group various windows on a desktop.
We have found this feature to be very helpful in keeping the clutter down. It is better than the "Show/Hide application" toggle because it will work for a group of apps and windows.
Some of us prefer using the keyboard to toggle amongst the various "spaces", but devices such as the Belkin Nostromos n52 is perfect for those who like dedicated keys for special functions. The Belkin n52 is easy to program and works great with OS X Leopard.
What are some of your favorite unexpected Leopard features? Tell us via email. If the interns agree, you may find yourself with one of these colorful Saitek accessories! For our Windows-based readers, no worries, we'll be giving Saitek mice and USB hubs away the entire month of April... just keep a sharp eye out for clues. [Permalink] - Wan Chi Lau
