So you are asking me if I got an OS update for a computer that is made by a company that uses sweat shop labor, lies to and insults it's customers, uses extortion to try and change standards in it's favor, lies to it's investors by hiding profits, blames customer use on obvious design flaws and overcharges for their products? Seriously I wonder daily how apple users can even show their faces without hanging their heads in shame.

You do realize that most of your complaints would apply to most tech companies...right? :teehee:

Err... I don't use a mac but I recently did a clean install of Mac OS X Mountain Lion on my co-workers macbook for him. The UI did seem easy to navigate through, but I still think Mac is for ease of use and PC is for the Power User.

Ture but none of them seem to get a free pass. For example MS is being investigated for having closed API for their moble OS. Now let me get this straight, Apple with millions of units solid can do this and no one cares but MS does this with not one device yet sold and they are investiagted?

I was referring more to your comment on child/slave labor...

ease of use? I have never found it easy.

 

Windows that don't fully maximize which wastes lots of screen realestate on a MacBook, as does the app draw task bar thing. The fact that you have to go to a bar on the top of the screen to navigate options in the window uoy have open and again this wastes even more screen realestate.

 

A touchpad that at stock is set up counterintuitively and really pisses me off. It may have great response but you need to adjust the settings something many Mac users couldn't do.

 

The stock safari browser sucks but it is one many people keep. In regards to tabs and opening your first new tab its pathetic and back to the screen realestate issue when browsing the net you have already lost about 30% of your vertical space and because it doesn't maximize right you loose another 20% horizontally.

 

How on earth is any of this ease of use

+1, I think the real question here is who even uses a mac?
