I've used windows and linux for a long time and recently went mac. I took a while to get used to the OS and now i am going to rant about everything i dont like. Let me be clear though, i love Leopard, but some things are so dmb in the UI that i would like to point them out in hopes that someone knows how to make it work better or maybe enough people will agree that Jobs will make some changes in Snow Leopard or 10.7. Anyway, here we go: 1. The Traffic Lights Ah, the traffic light buttons. We've heard this one before, havent we? It took me a while to get used to the Zoom button, but now i dont even notice it. In fact, i find in windows and linux that the maximized windows are a pain now. What i want to talk about is the X (or 'hide') button. On every other OS the X closes the program. On OSX it closes the window. From what i gather, the theory behind this is the OSX window management is document-based and it would be a pain to hit the X and kill the app. This would make sense, but with more and more apps using tabs this 'hide' feature is a giant pain. Lets say i am in firefox/safari/photoshop cs4 (loing the tabs in that, btw), or any other tabbed app and i have my last single tab open. Logic says that to close the program i would hit the X and to close the current tab/document yet keep the app running i would hit the close button on the tab. 2. UI Consistency Leo was supposed to have a more unified UI but it still seems as though most apps do what they please. Yes, its much better than tiger, but the Apple programs are the culprits still. Finder looks like most other windows, iTunes has its own scrollbars, most of the iLife suite has black scrollbars except garageband (idk what other ones are different, but i spend alot of time in GB so i know it well) which follows Finder but with a semi-wood frame. In windows or linux 99% of apps use the same UI parts. I've only seen a few programs that insist on using a non-standard UI on linux or windows. 3. I dont know how to describe this one so just read it This isnt a problem per say, but i find myself doing this quite often. Lets say i have finder open. Now i want to open up another window. Instinct tells me to just click on the finder icon and a new window will pop up. This, of course, is not the case. I have to right click->new finder window to make it happen. It would be nice if when finder was the active window a new window would open when the dock icon is clicked. It would be logical and efficient. Thats all for now. If you are going to be an apple fanboy and tell me i am wrong dont bother posting, but if you have something constructive to say dont hold back! Thanks for reading.
