The One Rule

Michael Lopp on Mission Control:

It might not seem like a lot of change, but after religiously trying Exposé and Spaces for years, Mission Control finally feels like my desktop and not a set of sexy but poorly integrated tools that were fun to demo but hard to use. Perhaps the best compliment I can give to Mission Control is that as I’ve been exploring three-finger gestures, each gesture, out of the box, does exactly what I expect it to do: scrolling left moves a Space to the left and scrolling up moves to the meta-view of all spaces.

This is what I was getting at in my previous post about Apple aiming to “[create] a system where the average user immediately knows what to do and feels comfortable doing it; where interactions with the computer feel natural and automatic.”
