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.

Full screen is not the same as maximize, especially on the Mac, where you get a new pseudo desktop for the fullscreen window. Fullscreen hides things I want to see. The only time I don't want to see them is when I am watching a video, which is the only time I use fullscreen mode.

Ditto. Even worse is when I'm sending the stream to a AppleTV device; I want the damn video fullscreen on the AppleTV but I can only do that if I render all three of my other screens entirely unusable. Smooth move, OS X.
