Using Expose within Spaces

To drag a file into an application that's running in another one of your Spaces, use Expose while in Spaces overview mode. First, press F8 to go into Spaces overview mode, then press F9 to Expose all application windows. Hover over the application window you want and wait a moment or press the Space bar, and both that space and that application come to the foreground, ready for you to drop the file.

XPostFacto 4.0 Adds Tiger to More Legacy Macs

Send Article to a Friend

XPostFacto 4.0 Adds Tiger to More Legacy Macs -- Other World Computing has released its latest version of XPostFacto, a tool designed to help owners of Macintosh models not supported by Apple for specific Mac OS X releases to install and use those operating system versions. The latest version adds support for Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger. XPostFacto 4.0 enables the installation of the stripped-down Darwin Unix base of Mac OS X, as well as Mac OS X (client version) and Mac OS X Server. It can install Mac OS X 10.2 through 10.4. The operating system must be purchased separately.

The company noted in a press release that this version handles computers as old as the Power Mac 7300, which shipped in 1997. Many computers that lost Apple's support with the Tiger release can accept a Tiger upgrade, although without Apple's testing, it's entirely possible that additional quirks and problems may appear. The software, developed by Ryan Rempel, is free for use, but the company suggests a $25 donation to help continue supporting the software's development. [GF]
