Option-click to Hide Apps Quickly

This trick has been available in the Mac OS for years, but many people still don't know it. If you have too many windows cluttering up your screen, you can hide specific ones easily as you work. When you're in any application, hold down the Option key and click on another app's window, on the Dock, or in the Finder to switch to that other app and simultaneously hide all the windows in the previously current app.

The internationally-available Quadra 610 4/160, popular in higher-education programs overseas, sports a complete 68040 processor. As far as we can determine, only the U.S. Quadra 610 8/160 has a 68LC040 processor.
