So, it seems that every time I switch workspace, Spaces helpfully
decides that I want Finder as the front most application. How useful.
This makes Spaces a waste of space.
Dear lazyweb, which virtual desktop system is useful?
It doesn't do that here. It doesn't affect the stacking order of the windows at all.
By the way, in the Spaces overview you can drag windows between workspaces. If you hit 'C' it'll collect all the windows back to the current workspace. Which has nothing to do with your question but someone might find it amusing :)
Personally I like You Control : Desktops [yousoftware.com] but I havent upgraded to Leapord yet, so YMMV.
Almost every X11 Window Manager I've used manages to get this right. Perhaps if Steve Jobs had looked at a Unix after 1987 for the base of the new OS....
If Our Jobs had intended us to control windows by licking candy-like widgets, he wouldn't have included a mouse and keyboard.
You mean Spaces does the right thing in your opinion? Congratulations, you’re the first person I’ve seen talk about it who is happy with how it works.
Ah! I think that the "problem" is that I don't have any windows open on the other space, so Finder gets brought to the front. Then when I switch back, Finder remains the active application, and one of its windows is brought to the front. If I start another application there, then all is happy, and nothing (visibly) gets restacked. But this still irritates me - why does Finder need to be swapped to the front if zero applications have windows open? Still smells like a design bug - with or without Spaces it's
