Graphics, User Interfaces Federkiel writes: "People working with Apple computers are used to a very consistent user experience. For a large part this stems from the fact that the Lisa type of GUI does not have the fight between MDI and SDI. The question simply never arises, because the Lisa type of GUI does not offer the choice to create either of both; it's something different all along. I usually think of it as 'MDI on steroids unified with a window manager'. It virtually includes all benefits of a SDI and and the benefits of an MDI." Read on for how I feel about this age-old discussion.

"It takes a Windows user 15 steps to complete a task while in MacOS it would take only 4 steps, so naturally if the user learns how to do things right it would save him time and make him more productive."

Show me a task that takes 4x more steps on a Mac. I'll be waiting.

That is not what he/she said.
The OP said it takes Windows users 15 steps to complete a task where a mac user can do it in 4.

I know, exaggeration, but lets see what he replies to this rewording of your question....

Show me a task that OS/X users can do in 4 steps, that would take 15 on Windows ?
