Disable window pop up animation in Mac OS X Lion

Fully agreed with some reviews of Mac OS X Lion that, pop up window animation is quite annoying. Luckily it also provides a way to disable it with Terminal.

In Terminal, paste command below and press enter:

defaults write NSGlobalDomain NSAutomaticWindowAnimationsEnabled -bool NO

UPDATE on Aug 13,2011: Try Lion Tweaks to make it more easier. You can change many other hidden settings with it too.
