Here's one - I completely agree with this. Windows is intrusive, counter-intuitive and slows the user down. Everything from unzipping a file to plugging in a USB device is slowed down excessively for no real purpose or benefit. A Wizard to unzip a file? Whoever does MS's user interaction studies needs a new job.Who has the personal preference of an OS always getting in the way, using mushy eyecandy to cover the fact that the UI hasn't really been _improved_ any? (That was rhetorical, but I guess answers will appear nonetheless...)
Mine has just popped up another balloon in my face (and I mean in my face - I'm HSP, and stuff like that might as well be the size of the screen) to tell me that Outlook is having trouble reaching the Exchange Server. So f*cking what? Next time I have to switch to Outlook, why not tell me then, instead of interrupting me when I'm busy? Seconds later, ANOTHER ONE appears to tell me, never mind, it's working again. Gee, thanks. Now p*ss off!
I just find OSX completely the opposite, it's there if I need it, and it keeps out of the way if I don't. Imagine if you had an assistant in the office who kept interrupting you to tell you the sun had come out, that's what Windows is like to me.
