Mac OS X There are several things which take quite some getting used to when switching from any platform to the Mac. There are things like the universal menubar, the dock, Expose, and many more. One of the things that often leads to confusion for new users is the installation process for applications. Mozilla developer Alexander Limi talks about the problems Mozilla runs into when it comes to Firefox' installation process on the Mac, and a possible solution. Update: A possible solution?

You’re missing the point. It’s not about YOU, YOUR computer, the way YOU like to do things. You’re a privileged snob, smart enough to know how to drag things to an application directory, stop telling us you know that, WE KNOW TOO.

The article is about regular users who do not know that you have to drag the app out of the disk image and it is hindering Firefox adoption on the Mac.

You would make a bloody awful software developer if all you ever care about is yourself.
