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 completely fail to see any usefulness in those


Which is fine by all means. I fail to see the usefulness in strict tiling window managers with no window controls whatsoever, but there are some users out there who do everything with a keyboard, and I'm sure it's a boon for them. However, I'm not going to call their system "broken" just because it fails to meet my own needs. They didn't write it for me, they wrote it for the people who do find it useful. That's my issue with your take on this: Because it doesn't fit your strict requirements, you call it "broken" for everyone.

i'm a bit of control freak


Exactly.
