Grouping all your windows in one space!

I know I said I wasn't going to be making Leopard tips just yet, but this one was just too good to pass. You probably saw in the Apple video preview of Leopard how you can easily change from one space to another and how you can quickly move windows between spaces. There is something really cool that wasn't mentionned though. You can group back all your open windows in the main space. To do this, when you are in the Spaces environment (by clicking F8), hit "C". All the open windows will group in the main space. You can ungroup them by hitting "C" again.

To juhi: I thought the same thing but I managed to find out how (I imagine this is the same in Leopard but as I'm running Tiger I don't know):

1: Finder
2: Go to the Finders Preferences (Menu Bar>Finder>Preferences)
3: General
4: Un-tick the first box labeled "Hard Drives".

I think that I saw in Apple-Insiders extensive Gallery (http://www.appleinsider.com/article.php?id=3352) that Leopard allows you to just take off your internal HD, but I might have been dreaming

Repost - there were some typos!

Before everyone goes nuts about Leopard, a couple of observations from a Mac user of 25+ yrs.

1. In almost all cases, it is release nn.nn.4 that is the first fully stable version, suitable for installing on mission critical machines.
2. Pioneers should install a major release (i.e. Leopard in this instance) on a HD partition, so that when things go tits-up, which they will, it is possible to revert to 10.4.10 or earlier.
3. Many legacy programs will not work on a nn.nn.1 release.

If you do not do this already, subscribe to MacFixit.com. Only today there is a dire warning about running DiskWarrior on 10.5. http://www.macfixit.com/article.php?story=20071024094829561

I am not trying to be a party-pooper here, I merely offer advice gained over many years. Got the T-shirt, and plenty of scars!
