    I know we've all seen the smackbook thing, but this guy has made it work with spaces for Leopard. Works pretty good, altho a little sensitive. Something you can wow your mac-hating friends with :bigthumb:

    basically is uses the sudden motion sensor, allowing you to tap your laptop (the smack part) and change from one "Space" to another. Before spaces, they used some other desktop manager that had a neat cube effect, but I like the slide in spaces, it's much quicker. So, if i'm on space 1, i can tap the left edge of my macbook and it switches to space 2. If i tap the right edge, it switches back.
