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 am not sure if this will work in 10.10 when it is released, but I use BetterTouchTool to provide Windows 7-like functionality with dragging to the top performing what most would consider a maximize (not fullscreen). I understand the issue is, really, that Apple would not provide a generally accepted maximize button, but this works great for me.
