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.

No, that is perfectly normal. This is a Mac, it beahves just like a Mac, therefore, it'll act like a Mac. How is the way Home/End so different? its pretty obvious! home at the top, end at the bottom!


That's horse manure. It's no more intuitive than using Home to take you to the start of a line and End being used to take you to the (yep, you guessed it) end of a line.
