I'm a developer and use spaces extensively. I have my terminal in one space, my editor in another, etc.
When I use ctrl + arrow key to switch to the left or right the animation is incredibly slow (better than in older versions, but still). This is killing it for me.
Is there a way to turn this animation off or influence its speed?
I know there was a command in Snow Leopard that could do that
defaults write com.apple.dock workspaces-swoosh-animation-off -bool YES
but it doesn't work anymore. Does anyone know a trick to fix this?
