I just needed to post a thread on some lovin' for our favorite OS, Mac OS X. I was in my senior thesis class this morning, and we are in the process of doing our presentations on collaborative writing. Let me just say, it is so amusing watching people struggle with Windows XP. One thing that made me laugh was the "eject" process for removable media. Do you people realize how much of a pain it is to eject, say, a simple USB thumb drive from XP? First, you have to go down to the task bar (I think that is what it is still called) and right click and tell it to "remove media." Then, a lovely little dialogue box comes up asking you to select which device you would like to remove. Next, you select that device, then click on "stop." Once this happens, yet another dialogue box comes up saying this may remove other "generic" devices. You then click "ok" then your device is (sometimes) removed, or ejected. This is just one example of the pain of XP. Why can't it just be plain and simple like it is in OS X? Drag it to the trash (which becomes an eject icon), right click it, or go to the Finder menu. Three different ways to do it, all with the same logical "eject" option. Of course, there are thousands of examples that we could all give of how a process is much simpler on Mac OS X compared to the same process on XP. Actually, why don't we do that? If you folks want to, take the time to describe a process that is so much simpler on OS X than XP. Let's see what we can all come up with!
