I've been playing with Mac OS X 10.3 (Panther) for a few days now and have found the following to be extremely annoying versus using KDE 3.3 on Linux. So annoying, that if I can't solve them soon, I'm selling my new Mac Mini.
- Windows open on top of each other. KDE 3.3 positions new windows so they minimize overlap.
- Windows don't snap together. I love how KDE will snap windows to the edges of the screen and other windows; it makes organizing lots of windows cake.
- No built in ogg/vorbis support, couldn't get a couple solutions to work in iTunes.
- Can't click red X icon to quit a program, it just closes the window and leaves the program running in the background.
- Home and end keys don't work, you have to press two keyboard buttons to do the same thing. LAME!
- Middle mouse button doesn't do anything. On KDE I use it mostly to open/close tabs in Firefox, which is very important.
- Had to install drivers to make forward/backward buttons on my mouse work. And even that is a lame workaround, it just makes the mouse emulate the equivalent keyboard strokes.
- Maximizing windows doesn't fill the whole screen. If I maximize Firefox, it will fill the height of the screen only to the top of the taskbar/menubar, and leaves like 80 pixels of width open (wtf?)
- Firefox has to download a playlist file to the desktop to play it, so you get loads of files laying around, this should be transparent. It just gets annoying.
- 1.25Ghz is really slow. I notice lag between starting programs, moving around, and booting up. Probably mostly related to the slow harddisk and CPU.
- No front-facing USB ports. Plugging in a USB memory stick, is a PITA.
Wow, I'm almost conviced to put it up on eBay tonight.
