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.

Except it's not "broken maximise", it's zoom. It's an entirely different concept on an entirely different OS. As you said, you came from Windows, where all you've ever known is "min, max, exit". On the Mac, it's "close window without exiting the program, minimize to the dock, zoom to show the window contents", each of which is alien to Windows.

In other words, just because it's different and uncomfortable for you doesn't mean it's broken for everyone.
