Mac OS X "The Unofficial Apple Weblog has posted a short story on the top five mistakes made by new Mac users. It includes closing an application window and thinking it has quit, downloading software and then running it from the disk image (runs slowly, can't eject disk image), and Windows .exe files littered around the desktop after they've tried to download software and install it. The comments attached to the article are entertaining, and pick up many other common mistakes. Here's a precise list of things that TUAW and its users said in comments, and a few of my own."

you wanna laugh ? nautilus still has it...
they were not even consistant since gnome 1.4 through gmc had the merge option by default (at least, it asked)
nautilus just don't care...

at least mac os X is consistent since finder 1.0
