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.

Zoom not as bad as Fullscreen

Zoom is interesting, though I'm in the habit of holding down shift when clicking the green button. 99% of the time Shift+Zoom works like Windows/Linux maximize.

Full screen on the other hand is less than worthless. I'm a developer with multiple monitors. Full screen turns those extra monitors into useless gray screens.

Why is it so difficult to full screen a YouTube video or movie on the large monitor for my daughter to watch while I'm working on an app on the other two? Ironically, that "just works" on Linux and Windows.
