Mac OS X An interesting article has been making its way around the internet the past few days, titled "Top 10 Usability Highs Of Mac OS". Mac OS X indeed does some things very, very right, just like many other operating systems and graphical environments do some things very, very right. The issue with the list of the article in question is that many of the items on the list are not exactly examples of "Usability Highs" at all.

Just to comment on Thom's remarks that most software uninstall and still leave files and settings around.

I'm a Ubuntu Linux user and 'apt' and 'dpkg' is awesome! (thanks to Debian really) 'dpkg' has two modes of uninstalling software.

One that uninstalls software and leaves the settings/config files on the system (dpkg -r).

The second option (dpkg -r --purge) will uninstall the software and remove any configuration files - leaving no trace of that software!

Linux rocks! :-)
