Hi! My name is Cédric Bozzi, I make websites and iOS apps, and this is my blog about technology (mostly a Twitter archive, really).

Microsoft has actually copied Exposé

@windows@

I agree that Flip 3D can’t adequately be called a copy of Exposé; it’s more of an evolution of Alt-Tab, certainly inspired by Exposé but rather different functionally, and adapted to the keyboard-centric usage of Windows. (And, in that respect — and in the opinion of someone who hasn’t seen a Vista install in person yet — it’s a pretty good evolution of an ages-old feature.)

However, it turns out there is actually an Exposé clone in the latest IntelliPoint software for Microsoft’s mice and trackballs. Oh, and it looks weird.
