Mac OS X

Close, minimize, and maximize are now close, minimize, and full screen, eliminating the extra full-screen control and consolidating the window controls in one place. Streamlining these and other elements of the interface means you can navigate the desktop more efficiently.

OS X' idea of "maximise" was "some random window resizing nobody really used anyway", so I'm glad Apple finally replaced it with something else. Too bad OS X' fullscreen view is way too disruptive for my tastes to be of any practical use.

I don't use it that much myself, but for some apps it worked quite well - the idea being not to maximise it but make it fit its contents properly. Unfortunately, for many apps that did indeed seem random. Pity, it could have been a decent feature if they had fixed it properly early on...
