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 agree. I really miss the zoom to fit content of BeOS, and the zoom feature of OS X was nice.

I'm constantly having to resize windows on Linux and Windows, and it gets old. It would be really nice to have a zoom feature on them.

I should be noted that I very rarely ever have windows at full screen. It happens mostly on my laptop, but my desktop has larger screens which I like to tile with windows.
