Speed up OS X Lion

Speed up Mission Control

In terminal, enter the following commands to speed up the Expose and Workspaces transition delays:

defaults write com.apple.dock expose-animation-duration -float 0.15
defaults write com.apple.dock workspaces-edge-delay -float 0.15 
killall Dock

You can modify the 0.15 to whatever you want, but this is my preferred settings :)

Remove mouse acceleration

defaults write .GlobalPreferences com.apple.mouse.scaling -1

It should come into effect after relogging.

Remove Window delay

This will get rid of the animation when opening a new window.

defaults write NSGlobalDomain NSAutomaticWindowAnimationsEnabled -bool NO
