Apple I love OSNews, but it does seem like some of its editors enjoy just a little too much taking a good natured jab at Apple upon occasion (well, more like every chance that particular editor can get). I thought it time for a little good news and analysis about Apple that critics often overlook.

I do have a solution to the Dock issue, organize your applications in related folders. Then, drag the Mac Applications folder to the Dock. Pretty much an instant "Start Menu". And since I run both Windows 7 Aero and OS X in real-time on my Mac using VMWare Fusion using the multiple screen Spaces utility which allows me to quickly switch between environments (with a tripple click of my Mighty Mouse!).

So I have both on my Mac and my PC an Accessories folder which includes the calculator, calendar, address book, Write/Text Edit, and other "desk accessory" type tools that ship with both OSs, a Business folder with business applications, a Tools menu for utilities, a Multimedia folder for media applications and a Web Design folder for my web development programs, tools and utilities.

As for the 5 or so most important applications I use daily, they go on the dock in OS X and I pin them to the Task Bar in Windows.

Navigating my programs, though different between platforms, is equally efficient whether I'm using OS X or Windows...Start, All programs, program folder, program. And in OS X, applications icon on the dock, application folder, application.
