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.

The worthless gray screens issue was fixed in 10.9. Now when an app is in fullscreen mode it only takes over one display, and the others are still available for use by other desktops or fullscreen apps.


but the workspaces are still linked, making it still fairly broken. It pretty much breaks the entire reason for having two screens. One for fullscreen work and another for reference.

If workspaces did not exist, then nobody would be spreading apps across them, so this issue does not exist in windows.
