I thought I would share this with everyone on Panther.

This is a terminal command that makes the show desktop (F11) function work a different way.

Here is the command (all on one line):
defaults write com.apple.dock wvous-olddesktop -bool false; killall Dock

Here is the Complete Link to the original article!

I heard about this back when Panther was first starting to ship, at the time there was lots of speculation as to whether Apple was planning to implement a Virtual Desktop function at a later time.

Nothing has come of it though, not yet anyway.

it's broken.

it creates a "dead spot" on your screen where the desktop has shrunk down, even with expose off -- i was panicking when i couldn't click in safari (1 week after getting my first mac!!), but it was the hack.

use at your own risk...i must say it looks cool.
