Panther Expose

Mac OS X Panther (via Scott Hanselman): "Type the F9 key, and Expose instantly tiles all of your open windows -- scales them down and neatly arranges them, so you can see what’s in every single one." And, thankfully, when you choose a window to work on, they all spring back to their proper sizes. There's also a keystroke to highlight only the windows of the current application. What a great feature!

We've seen how Microsoft "innovation" flounders in the absence of competition, and during Apple's long troubles the Windows GUI has seen only incremental changes. OS X is shaping up to be the challenge Microsoft needs.

Just a pity Avalon is a full two years away...
