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 use a logitech mouse as well but that isn't the problem. As I said earlier the problem is that the system is designed around a one button mouse. There are too many cases where right-click does nothing.


I gotcha. I guess I have not run into this. All the apps I use that have context menus work with right click as expected.

As to the Red close box not actually quitting the application, IIRC this is a carryover from the classic OS days. I believe it also the expected way an app is to function on a Mac and again, IIRC part of Apple's guidelines for developers. Of course if an app has a single window and us utility in nature there is no reason a developer can't allow the app to quit when the red close is clicked in the last window.
