You can scroll on any window, focused or not, using wizmouse on windows.

Focus follows mouse is the right way that's for sure. Its winfags who started popularizing inferior focus on click and shitty distros like Ubuntu started adopting it too and removed superior focus follows mouse.

It doesn't crash, but freeze completely when you do extremely tasking tasks. It also keeps tearing unless you use a compositor +OpenGL with fucking vsync just to render your desktop.
Also, a standardized API for developing applications, like Cocoa, is a great thing. Linux is really held back by not having one. When Qt or GTK update, your application breaks because there's 0 backwards compatiblity. The devs don't give a shit about it.

Thats bullshit. Cocoa is a clusterfuck when compared to Qt. Although gtk not so much.

It's a small thing, but I love the differentiation between cmd+tab and cmd+`, to switch between applications, and between multiple windows in a single application.

It doesn't, there are millions of free ways to do that.
But a valid point you could bring up is that apple allows such shit software in the App store. It would be acceptable if it was free, but demanding money for this is insolent.

Completely offset by the fact that clicking on an object in a window isn't reflected to the object if the window isn't in focus; you have to click once to focus the window, then click on the thing you want to click on. It's idiotic.

I've used OS X 10.9.x as my main OS on my PC for like 6 months (maybe I was on 10.8 for a while, can't recall).

But I can't take this anymore. I have a 1080p monitor, and after having seen all the high-DPI screenshots it just looks like pure garbge. Windows just feels more appropriate.
>>
>43072816
It's fine, but when you want finder to display the hidden files, you have to write stuff to a .plist (usually done via a terminal command), restart finder and only then you can see them. This point was definitely valid. The finder is fucking horrible. I was expecting them to completely redo it for 10.10, but of course they don't.

Salt is really fucking important too, people with high salt intake have lower risk of hypertension, and among other things, salt helps lower cortisol. I don't think anyone would disagree with you that simple carbs are bad, but cholesterol isn't just good for you, it's essential to proper basic bodily functions. It's only in people who regularly spike their insulin because of bad diet levels that cholesterol is an issue.

I live in America. Think about what I consider high and normal for salt intake and how it compares to how the rest of the world eats.
>>
>>43075736
I'll take a direct quote from Michael Alderman, the former president of the american society for hypertension. "The more salt you eat, the less likely you are to die." This was in reference to data from a study with over 21,000 participants that has been on going since 1974. Higher salt 'risks' only appear in obese people.
