I have been a Windows user since Win 1.0 and until June of this year I had never used Macs or OS X. Over the years, I have seen many testimonials from people that rave about their Mac and OS X and, since I was totally ignorant of either, decided to buy a Mac to find out what all the raving was about. I wasn't unhappy using Windows or having any major problems causing me to want to switch, I was simply curious about OS X and why Mac users rave about it so much. I bought a 2009 2Ghz C2D Mac Mini and used it pretty extensively for a few months and I have to say that I don't understand what is so great about OS X. I hear people say that OS X is much more stable than Windows but I have no stability issues with my Win machines so that is a moot point to me. Of course there is the virus potential but I use the free AV software, AVG, and don't have any virus issues to speak of so, again, it's a moot point for me. There's things I really don't care for in OS X. I don't like having the menu bar for every application at the top of the screen instead of the top of the application's window. I don't like that clicking on the red 'X' hides the window but doesn't close the app. I don't like that I can only resize a window from the bottom right corner of the window. For the longest time I didn't like the Finder but couldn't put my finger on why until I finally realized it's because Finder lacks a Tree view which makes it harder to use than Windows Explorer. Without a Tree view I find it necessary to open a 2nd copy of Finder in order to copy files from a folder on a drive to another folder on the same drive or a different drive using drag & drop. If there is a Tree view option for Finder, please tell me how to invoke it! I don't care for the Dock. I think it is ugly and intrusive, taking up too much screen real estate. I know it can be resized but I still don't like it. BTW, I chuckle when people say Win 7 copied the Dock. How is that? Win 7 uses Quick Launch which has been around in Windows since at least Win 2000. MS did make the mistake of making the default icon size in Win 7 huge and ugly like the Dock but thankfully it can be customized. Quick launch is off to the side and much less intrusive, IMO, than the Dock so I like it better. Now, I realize that my main "problem" is that I am used to the way I have been doing things in Windows all these years and I'm set in my ways. I am not looking to start a fight or an argument of which OS is better. I am trying to state my honest opinion of some reasons why I don't think OS X is a good fit for ME.
