What Windows Features Do You Want In OS X? - Page 5

You don't understand. In Windows, if you right-click and drag a file, when you release the click button a context menu will show up with options (copy here, move here, create shortcut here)

Pretty nifty.</strong><hr></blockquote>

---&gt; It's funny that the 'right-click' thing is being mentioned here. Finally/happily there are multi-button mice on the Apple. I cannot work with a one-button mouse, it's just too awkward!

A Windows feature that I want in 'X'?

A faster cpu.

there have been multibutton mice for a looooooong time. More than 10 years. BUT before there was either Serial/PS2 (for PC) or ADB (for Mac). Now we all happily have USB and can use any mouse or controller.
I'm having deja-vu and amnesia at the same time. I think I've forgotten this before.

True to a certain extent, but the 'lovely' mono-button mouse puck solution on the original iMac (also USB) was a disaster to put it mildly. Heck... look at the Apple site right now:

"Compatible with all USB-enabled Apple computers"


This ONE BUTTON mouse costs $60 (!!!) <img src="confused.gif" border="0">

That was the most stupid thing I've heard all day.

It's the exact same thing!

Option-click is bound to the middle-button on my mouse, so middle-clicking the minimize-button will minimize all. Middle-button dragging a file will copy it instead of moving it. Middle-button clicking another app will hide the current.

This is all currently available in MacOS, I just chose to customize my settings so that the feature would be more easily accessible. Of course I had to do this through a third-party app, since Apple don't want to support features for power users to customize their comps.

Of course, this is a whole other debate.

You still haven't given any arguments on the topic at hand, which was why right-click and drag would be a bad thing...

I gather you have no arguments?

I want to be able to close minimized windows from the dock without maximizing the window in question.

I'm quite sure this was mentioned before. The feature was in pre-GM builds of 10.2, but yanked at the last moment.
