Mac OS X In my house today, all of the computers are Macs. This is a long way away from three and a half year ago, when I said that Jaguar could not replace my PC. We're chugging along happily running Tiger, just as productive as before, and enjoying every bit of eye candy. But OS X isn't always cherry pie, it's got its own set of faults, and some can be downright annoying. UPDATED

about the file "tree" view.
I hear this all the time, maybe I'm missing something but I just don't see the defference between the "list view" and what you're talking about. I'm sure there must be more to it from the amount of talk it gets. then again how may times have I read people saying they don't like macs because they don't like the one button mouse. sheesh.

I switched to macs in '97. I've NEVER dragged a volume to the trashcan to eject it (of course I've never used a one button mouse either). it just seems weird. just hit cmd-e for eject.

I also find very strange the guys comments about drives not unmounting properly, I can't say I've EVER seen that.

and the idea that the app would close when I close the last window makes me want to break things. one of the big things that puts me off Linux. I'm constantly restarting an app that I didn't want to quit. for those who can't figure it out, on the mac you don't have to close the window and then go close the app. just hit cmd-q for quit. the window will go away when the app quits. doesn't that make sense?
