Different views of the new desktop and window management paradigms in Lion

What I find most interesting about these types of posts is just how divided people are on these features. I love the idea of having a main desktop just a swipe away from a full screen version of iTunes or Final Cut Pro, while others detest the new Mission Control paradigms.

With fullscreen apps and Mission Control, Apple has made multiple desktops easy to use, easy to understand, and most crucially for me, easy to get started with. While not everyone likes fullscreen apps or gestures, to me, this is an example of exactly what Apple is trying to accomplish with Lion: creating a system where the average user immediately knows what to do and feels comfortable doing it; where interactions with the computer feel natural and automatic.

With Lion, Apple has made the concept of spaces accessible to everyone — Surat Says

Friction

There is no better reason to not do something
There is no better reason to try
There is no better reason to fight
Against tyranny and strife

Removal is often the goal
Removal is often the challenge
Removal is often not enough
To completely fix what hangs in the balance

But it can bring about great change
But it can bring light
But it can bring great joys
In the darkness of the night

And so I live with friction
And so I live with what is hard
And so I live with what I love
But I stay upon my guard
