I use both Spaces and Expose, particularly when I am on the move and have only my MacBook. By using Spaces, well……. I feel like I have more space and can spread things out a bit. At home I have dual monitors so I use only expose. The extended desktop is sufficient real estate.
I have 6 windows. Five are assigned. Safari on 1, Mail 2, iTunes 3, iPhoto 4 and 5 is a dedicated finder window. 6 is open and used for either Skype, MacJournal, Word processing with a totally black background (eclipse with backdrop) or photo processing with Photomatix, Lightroom or APCS 4. I use hot corners as well as Ctl+(the number) for Spaces, and gesturing for Expose. Mouse buttons when at home for Expose. Here's my rub. I never use the 4 finger gesture to evoke the application switcher. I find it awkward. I wish Apple would allow to customize for a Spaces gesture in it's place…….. and there is no way I'm going to install 3rd party software for this feature on my multi-touch trackpad.
