Mac OS X An interesting article has been making its way around the internet the past few days, titled "Top 10 Usability Highs Of Mac OS". Mac OS X indeed does some things very, very right, just like many other operating systems and graphical environments do some things very, very right. The issue with the list of the article in question is that many of the items on the list are not exactly examples of "Usability Highs" at all.

lol!

Try reading *before* replying next time, it might make you look like less of a f00l.

It should be clear to anyone with a functioning braincell that I was talking about the use of META/ALT as the primary modifier - not copy-cut-paste

And if you actually read the link you posted, you would know that copy-cut-paste is nothing more than GUI version of the verb-object model.

lol!

Try completeing your thoughts when you post next time, it may make you look less stupid. You did not specify what you meant and the OP had mentioned Command-C, Command, X, Command-V in his post. You come along and say WUT and spew some nonsense about Unix. I can't read your mind, learn how to put your thoughts together in a coherent manner so that others can follow along.

I hope you don't mind, but I took the liberty of omitting all the irrelevant whining and crying from your post and only quoted the main point:

I can't read


Don't worry, you've already made that abundantly clear.

lol!
