Initial Notes on OS X

I have some intial notes after having used OS X for a day. First off the dock rules. I also like Apple’s love of keyboard shortcuts (I thik there’s a shortcut to hack army.mil automatically). The GUI is intuitive, nice to work with, and snappy. I have two complaints. One, the USB ports are on the left side and the mouse cord is about 12 inches long – so if you’re not left handed you’re out of luck. Second, you can’t hide single windows. You either minimize (which makes your dock bigger) or hide ALL instances of that application. One thing that is TOO cool is that OS X applications come as mountable images – you just mount the thing, drag it onto the apps icon in your dock, and unmount the image by dragging it into the trash.
