Often I am critized because I rave on and on about the Mac platform and constantly put down Microsoft without ever actually saying why I hate (MSFT) so much.
Its simply because its hard to explain. When you are using Microsoft Windows, let's say XP because that's what I am forced to use, you get the overwhelming sense of misplacement. Things don't function as they should, icons, toolbars, and menus feel out of place and not well constructed. The whole OS just feels like a kludge. Like it was designed by a commitee, on a white board, and no one in the room was told "no" to any idea.
Installing apps is insane. Next, next, next, agree, ok, next, done, reboot (sometimes). Now yes there are a bunch of mac programs that do the same thing, especially the ones from Apple itself but I think the apps that really get it right on the Mac platform are the ones that, when you download them, they automount and present you with two icons. The one for the program you just downloaded, and a shortcut icon for the Applications folder. All you have to do is a one second drag and drop from left to right. The program installs. Done.
That's the way it should be.
This article that I just read really hits the nail in the head. I enjoyed reading it it prompted many of the thoughts that I just wrote up there. So excuse if you read some redundancy.
