Minimize or Miniaturize?

in macOS edited January 2014
While browsing the Jaguar HIGs in Preview I noticed that the Window menu has a Miniaturize Window option. Every other app says Minimize Window. What gives? I've always thought the official term was minimize.

    Maybe Apple's changing the official term. "Maximze" and "minimize" are also official Windows terms, so maybe Apple doesn't want that. They should call "minimize" - "shrink" and "maximize" - "zoom" again, "expand" or "optimize"
