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.

Saying something is "broken" implies it simply cannot be used by anyone, anywhere. Let's take archery. A bow made for left handed people isn't "broken", it's simply not made for right-handers. A right-handed archer won't pick up a left-handed bow and say "I can't use this because it's broken", he will put it down and pick up a right-handed bow and hit his target, or else he will learn to shoot left-handed. Either way, the left-handed bow can still be used, by him with training or by a left-handed archer.

If you had said "this doesn't work for me" I wouldn't have had an issue, in fact I would have agreed with your assessment and gone on reading. I stopped and replied because your implication that a working system is "broken" just because you don't like it was patently false.
