    I've been using a MacBook for few weeks and can't seem to figure out how to change window size from all 4 corners and sides. Looks like I can do it only from the bottom right corner? It's little annoying.

    thats how its always been on the Mac :) surprisingly though Lion, the next version of OS X, will get all corner and sides window resizing.

    I had a bit of problem getting used to that, but the green button always gets the window the size it should have to be able to see all the content. if you need to see multiple windows at once, u could try this app called iSnap (costs $1 on appstore). it lets u move windows to the edge and has them snap into different positions, (doesnt work with MS Office!). Kinda like windows 7 does.

    I think u just need to get used to Mac OS :apple:, and get rid of some of the windows based bad habits.

    Try using Exposé, and spaces. Its superb! :D

    i like to have my windows full screens from time to time

    a brilliant lil tool called rightzoom

    'This free tool fixes an inconvenient behavior of green Zoom button in Mac OS X. It will always expand windows on a full screen instead of strange resizing'.

    its free from here
