Windows Okay, so this is new. When it comes to graphical user interfaces, everyone is copying everyone, but you'll always find supporters of platform Abc claiming platform Xyz is stealing from them - and vice versa. Mac supporters have often stated that Vista and Windows 7 were copying from Apple, and according to Microsoft's partner group manager, Simon Aldous, this is true. Wait, what?

The first thing I have to do every time I try OSX is install a third party tool to disable mouse acceleration.

If configurability is only important when the interface is poor then I've successfully fixed GNOME while OSX remains permanently broken to some extent.

But the truth is an interface can be configurable and consistent at the same time - having the same set of components and having it obvious what those components are and having them behave the same regardless of how they're arranged.
