Mac OS X "This is the problem: You want to open a file using something other than the default application. You right-click its icon in the Finder, choose Open With, and a submenu pops up with an absurd number of duplicate entries." This is so annoying. Dr. Dang made a little addition to .bashrc so you can fix it with a single command. Now it's up to Apple to actually fix the problem (via Daring Fireball).

It is annoying and the fix is so simple making you wonder why Apple doesn't make OS X do this automatically once in a while.

They haven't fixed it because it's a feature.

Apple have cleverly duplicated entries so people with twitchy arms don't have to worry quite so much about point and click accuracy.

Apple are once again innovating usability.
