Hot key or screen corner?

Assuming that Dashboard will work the same way as Expose, it should allow you to activate it by using the hotkey (F12) or a screen corner. Currently with Expose, I never use the hotkey, just screen corners. Bottom-left is for all windows, and bottom-right is for desktop. I never use all application windows, since I can see them with the 'all windows' corner.

When Tiger is released, the first thing I plan on doing is making Dashboard activate on the top-right hand corner.

How about you? Do you like screen corners, or hotkeys? How will you be using Dashboard?

In Panther, I use the top-right corner for show desktop, and hotkeys for the rest.

I think I will just use a hotkey to activate Dashboard, since it's not like I'll be using it every two minutes. I hope its not on F12 though, since on my powerbook, F12 is the eject key! Now that could get annoying, fast!

I use all my F-keys for Photoshop actions and Word Macros...I'm running out. Maybe we need a keyboard with F-keys and "Apple Keys" for Volume, Brightness, Expose, Dashboard, Eject, Power and all that.

'Apple Ergonomic Keyboard' perhaps? Like the MS one with buttons and do-da's all over it? No thanks.
