Here’s the thing. I don’t use the mouse that much, and I never subscribed to the whole ‘gestures’ thing. I’ve always used keyboard shortcuts, as I find them to be far more efficient than waving a mouse around. Mission Control requires you to use your mouse to do anything useful, either by using gestures or hot-corners.
This wouldn’t be such a problem in it’s own right, however Mission Control is nowhere near as powerful or feature packed as the combination of Expose’ and Spaces in Snow Leopard.
Here’s a list of functionality I used daily that no longer works (or at least I can’t find) in Lion:
- Align virtual desktops in a grid – now you’re forced to work entirely horizontally
- Drag applications directly between spaces – you have to actually go to the space, then go into Mission Control mode, then you can drag to other spaces
- Use keyboard shortcuts to quickly jump directly to a specific space
- Load applications in specified space
- Show open Application windows by click-holding on an Application icon (you have to click ‘Show All Windows’)
