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.

Was the Mac OS X "zoom" button the same as the "zoom" button that's still in Haiku? I kind of like using it in Haiku. ;)

Yes, the Zoom button resizes to best fit the contents of the window like in Haiku (but it didn't always work, e.g. Safari occasionally jumped to the lower left corner of the screen or, worse still, to under the menu bar meaning you couldn't get at it).
