10.3: Replace the Exposť 'Show Desktop' behavior
Authored by: yadgor on Nov 02, '03 03:33:32PM
This is a fairly pointless exercise, but good for a laugh. Enter this into the terminal to turn on the alternate Exposť 'Show Desktop' feature
defaults write com.apple.dock wvous-olddesktop -bool false
killall Dock
Then run the a screen saver in the foreground by typing:
/System/Library/Frameworks/ScreenSaver.framework/Resources/ScreenSaverEngine.app/Contents/MacOS/ScreenSaverEngine -foreground &
Then when you use the Exposť Desktop feature you have a mini screen saver in the box. This looks great with Flurry, especially if you go the desktop and hide all other windows.

This works fine on my Quicksilver 2002 G4, but I've had reports of it locking up other machines.
