      Mission Control vs TotalSpaces opinions
      This alternative is disputed. Mission Control is still a legitimate alternative to TotalSpaces, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
      Standard Apple "embrace and reduce". It reproduces the core function of TotalSpaces and all the space managers that came before, but with a reduced feature set. No grid, less control of transitions and key bindings.

      because it sucks?? it just boils a 2D-grid of spaces down to 1 long row which is a total mess if you are working with more than 3 or 4 spaces...
