    i didn't know this feature existed till i saw it on dl.tv's show
    basically, you select the icon of the file you want to preview, then hit the space bar
    it will open up a nice little preview window, without opening up the associated application for the file
    hit space again to close the preview window


    this is so awesome for word documents, because neooffice takes forever to open, also it's faster than preview for pdfs

    i'm sure people know about this, but i'd figure that i'd give it a :bowdown:
