No. I got this system so that I had a system that would just work without constant attention. I'm not going to go adding screwy things to it

Anyway, I recommend adding an extension called "witch" to your system. It inserts an apple-tab like menu (you define the key... I have it set to opt-tab) that includes both apps and windows open, not just apps. Although I guess if you get used to Expose you don't need it.

I'll open mine up to put more RAM in it, that's about it.

How's the VGA output on yours? Or do you have a DVI monitor? Mine is definitely a bit dark.
