Apple Since it's weekend, which usually equates to no news, we figured we'd follow in Engadget's footsteps by asking you, our dear and loving readers, what you would change about Apple's current Mac Pro. Engadget readers already had a few things to say - this is the internet after all. And since this is OSNews, we add a question of our own: what would you change about Mac OS X?

I'm impressed - some people here have really long (and good) lists what could be changed. I'll just add some minor points for OSX:
- By default, either disable Spotlight's urge to leave dozens of hidden cache files on portable drives, or at least reduce the number. Just recently I lent my USB stick to someone running Leopard - and it came back loaded with indexing data useless to me.
- Make dragging documents out of the dock copy or move them. Really, the first time I tried that, I found it... counterintuitive to see a text file puff away in a cloud.
- Give me themes. Or at least a less depressing layout. But oh well, that has been discussed somewhere here on OSNews before.
- Make the mouse acceleration more customizable. I'm not aware of the way Leopard handles it, as I'm running Tiger. In Tiger, I had to install a 3rd party tool to get a (in my opinion) sanely moving mouse pointer.
