    Indeed. One day I want to see how a Spaces fan uses it. I like the idea of virtual desktops, especially on a laptop, but I can't figure how people get a lot of value from Apple's particular variation.

    And everyone day at work, I bemoan not having Desktop Expose in Windows.

    I just bought a Logitech M500 wired mouse for work (I know, low tech but I don't want to buy an expensive wireless mouse for work), and using their Logitech software I have Expose-like action from pressing down on the scroll wheel. Just FYI in case you're interested. I'm sure that would work with just about every Logitech mouse...

    I have that mouse at work as well. But what I meant to say is I miss the Expose feature that reveals the desktop. (The kludgy pseudo-Expose for application switching is interesting, but not smooth enough for me to use.)

    Got mine a few days ago. So far, I love it. No issues.

    That said... since I got my MBP, I find I'm not spending much time at my iMac! :) So I haven't used the MagicMouse a TON yet. So many Apple products in the home... :D
