The usability flaws of OSX - oh yes there are!

Most OS usability articles are about how nice Mac OSX is compared to Windows. It's something that mac zealots like to rave about. Contrary to popular belief, I'm not a mac zealot: in fact I find the zeal or scorn from either camp somewhat ironic. If you like macs, you're clearly a zealot, and if you like Windows, you're clearly a dummy.

If I have any apparent bias, it's an appreciation of the innovations that macs offer in a Windows world. If Microsoft emulate Apple's good ideas, then good for us. Likewise, if Apple emulated Microsoft, then good for us.

This article is a rarity in that it addresses the latter.
