Okay, I'll bite. I downloaded version 1.4 but don't get this behavior. Guess there's a new version coming with it? I don't see any announcements on the site.

Yikes, 46 MB of memory. Still, one of the better "exposeish" that I've seen.

Bil: As Scott said, it's coming soon. It'll be announced when it's out.

doumus.vita: You can tweak the memory usage in the config dialog. Change the "Performance" option to "Slower (uses less memory)". You can find out how to do this at http://www.otakusoftware.com/topdesk/documentation/html/configuring_topdesk.html.

Suggestion, could you drop the transparency? Leave transparency for Vista since that is a native part of the OS.

Andre - transparancy support is native to DirectX, not the "OS" and if your graphics card supports 3D hardware acceleration, it's as native as it's going to get.
