As a user of OSX on the mac since day one, a problem that a lot of newcomers to the system come across is the absence of a ‘minimise all’ feature.

You could also set a Expose hotspot to do the same thing but personally, I have always found Expose a bit ‘gimmicky’. If anyone knows of a way to add a button into the doc to do this, be sure to let me know!
