    Hi Folks,

    So just upgraded to Yosemite, and like most recent Apple software releases, I'm becoming less convinced that Windows or Linux could provide a worse user experience...

    I've got a dual screen system, and whenever I open a finder window, if I move it to a different location and then try to resize it, it moves back to the origin point. Moving the window, closing it and then opening again, it opens in its original location, even to the point of crossing over to the other screen.

    I've deleted com.apple.finder.plist from ~/library/preferences but the problem remains. Video is here:

    anyone else found this? it doesn't seem to effect other apps.

    cheers

    well a reboot seems to have cleared it up. First impressions, it's a fugly operating system. Too bright, too white, too many ugly buttons crammed too close to each other. The new Time Machine interface is about the only good thing ive found so far. Vulgar is the only word that comes to mind.

    I would, except that iOS 8 was made incompatible with the developer tool that allows you to push a test version of an EPUB to iBooks on the iPad, so you have to upgrade to Yosemite to use its version of iBooks if you want to keep developing.

    And now for no good reason, Yosemite is going to spend 18 odd hours backing up the entire boot disk with Time Machine, rather than just doing an incremental. Clownshoes software, made by bozo developers.

    That's the words I used to describe Mavericks and previous OS X releases. How people can have different tastes eh

    ahh, i think most of Mavericks was pretty nice - the cleanest version of pre-Yosemite OS X, but then again i still think Snow Leopard was the most functional and reliable OS release they've done :)

    Snow Leopard was quite good — if you disregard the constantly crashing Safari and Mail. And of course, that pesky bug that could delete all your data ;)

    Yeah I liked Mavericks as well but in regards to looks and design I think it was very dated and I much prefer Yosemite. Also Mavericks was worse than Yosemite on release, at least in my opinion. It seems that loads of people forget that Mavericks had a very shaky start, even Mountain Lion needed a few updates before it ran smooth on Retina MacBooks.
