This Blog now focus on shortcomings and flaws in Mac OS X regarding usability.
After buying a MacBook Retina, and really trying to love OS X, I must say I am disappointed. I love the, design, screen, touch-pad but the usability...
After using iPhone, iPad, AppleTV i decided to leave Windows. I was sure I would really like Mac as well and decided to hate Windows 8 and never use it outside work, but to my surprise I like it better than Mac OS X. However I will note Mac Advantages as well:-)
As I have complained before: There is no delete button on the Macbook.
Moreover the ways to anyway get the delete function is inconsequent:
Forward delete when writing text is acomplished with fn + BackSpace
Delete of a file in Finder is accomplished by CMD + BackSpace
I am cleaning the hard drive, and I am now really annoyed that I cannot do it with one operation and one hand. Why on earth is there no delete button ????
Now I must either simultaneously press CMD + delete or or drag to trash.
You can off course also "right click" and choose "move to trash" but that also requires more effort than just pressing "delete"
Mac is supposed to be user friendly, but this is rather user hostile!!
Googling shows that I am not alone with this opinion.
