What he meant was, Mac OS X, good for your Dad's nefarious website & porn browsing.

Seriously though, I feel a wee-bit sorry for Mac-eees.

I think this is a step in the wrong direction for a lot of technical Mac users but thats just my opinion. I guess no one forces you to update though.

Just a look at that sample screen will keep me in my current migration to the Windows camp. What a load of screen vomit, garbage all over the place, and no screen left to do any actual work. Hopefully MS won't try to copy that schlock, since it took them long enough to remove the brain damaged deal killer that the Start button was...

And the resident arguer / troll is here.

Having a day off of the PS3 / Sony threads / Anti-Android Threads?

Do you think anyone here actually believes you hate the Windows Start button?

Never a day off of the PS3 - but then, I am getting relief because LG won their suit in which Sony had pirated and hacked LG's patented and copyrighted innovations, and now can't sell their product in Europe until they either come to a cash settlement, or Sony is forced to remove Blu-Ray from the PS3.

I think LG should give Sony a taste of what Sony was dishing out, sending out cease and dissist orders to anyone who commented on the PS3 on blogs or YouTube, malicious persecution of end users engaged in legal activities with their PS3, lawsuits against the Sony engineers who didn't abide by LG's EULAs and copyrights, etc...

I was never against Android. I am against devices that manufacturers put in jail. All devices should be fully usable by the end users, and should not require jailbreaking.

Perhaps people don't believe, but I completely skipped all versions of Windows from 95 to XP, primarily because of the Start button. I know it reappears on Win7 if you shut off Aero - so I don't shut off Aero. The Start button was the biggest single piece of garbage MS put into their OS, well, aside from goofy stuff like the dancing paperclip and Interglitch Exploder.

I was an Apple user for many years, but have recently converted because I couldn't stand all of the garbage eye candy and performance robbing "features" that they keep tossing into their cesspool of an OS. Sure, no viruses, but worse, their own software that you can't shut off without borking the system that sucks performace away like a tornado. I also couldn't stand their staid, obsolete offerings that are quite often thrifted and a lack of practical desktop and laptop machines.

To be fair, OS X is an extremely good OS. People can argue the hardware all they want, but the OS itself is magnifcent. The mere fact you don't have to go through 38 mouse clicks and 22 sub-menus to find one little checkbox makes it really nice.

I do agree, however, that this really is an odd direction for the desktop... I'm not liking it so much.

Though, I did switch from OS X to W7 when Windows 7 was released. I love me some 7.

If your after performance and nothing else, try lunix or unix. You do realize that there is a market for a user experience that puts the experience over functional capability right? Your post reads like you wish all OS's would cut out all the fluff and focus on nothing but practicality. Your obviously not in Apple's target demographic, so why are you complaining?

Personally I see OSX as a good mobile OS that is well suited for laptops that will never do more then email and web browsing. I find Windows to be too bloated for my portable computing needs. In some cases, I desire the OS taking control from the user.

Some of the features are cool. Versions. Mac Mail is kind of cool. I'm a fan of vertical viewing(although widemail gets the job done in mac mail now). Internet accounts is cool.

Address book is dumb. Launchpad is dumb.

All the trackpad gestures are a complete waste of time. I have a macbook pro and never use them or know anybody that uses them. Mouse and keyboard is where it's at.

Full screen apps is kind of cool but only because Macosx is broken.

The are promoting full screen apps because the mult-tasking is fundamentally broken in MacOSX and has been since it was created.

They need to add a dock indicator of how many windows are open within a program. That would be something that is needed.

Possibly a maximize that works. Built in snap(think Cinch or HyperDock) like windows 7.

Easier to hit close button. Like in Windows 7, Vista, Xp.

"Open command line here" like in Windows 7 or KDE(and some other file managers)

Faster dock show / hide time.

Just some of the ones off the top of my head.
