 You're the inverse of me. I used to maintain my girlfriend's (now wife's) Mac for her in the late 1990s and found Mac OS to be positively archaic at that time.  Having to install huge amounts of RAM to prevent large applications from overwriting each other due to lack of proper memory protection, painstakingly tracking down extension conflicts, etc.  No thanks. However, when I first read about Rhapsody (now OS X) and it's marrying of BSD UNIX (I was using Linux at the...

 And once they do, everyone else starts doing the same and then claims it was obvious to do so from the beginning. I think this thread points out a clear difference in thinking between people.  Some people only see the function of an object, and as long as it does that function "well enough", they're satisfied.  Others see the function of an object, and believe that function can always be refined, made simpler, and even possibly be made more enjoyable by a little creative...
