    well i cant really blame Apple as much as software developers for not having as many 3rd party programs. Some developers just dont make a mac version, like with some p2p networks, not all support mac OS. Not really an OS flaw though, just a support issue.

    The Zoom button - I think the zoom button is a very good idea because it only maximizes the screen to how much you need it, but sometimes it does not work properly

    For example when I click on the zoom button on finder it resizes the window to a stupid size. When I do it in the applications folder it creates one column but makes the window long in length...

    Also sometimes when I click on the zoom button the finder window for some reason repositions itself on the screen to the bottom right hand corner - whyyyy!!!!

    I think option + mouse scroll wheel zooms in and out as well.

    I sort of thought the same thing.

    More Games Support.

    Beyond that I think it's the best OS I've seen/used so far, although I'm always open to change. Hence why I'm on a Mac and not Windows!

    Eh, Finder gets a little stupid if you have a misbehaving disk type device attached to it that isn't quite all there. I was having some problems with my external firewire drive hosing out in a way in which it was kind of attached, but Finder thought it was still there to talk to, so it beachedballed and hung the system until I either turned off the drive, or pulled the cable. Then it would complain to me that I should eject things before I willy-nilly unplug it. Well excuuuse me Finder, I'll be good in the future. (Thankfully, this turned out to be a cable issue, and a replacement cable has appeared to fix this.)

    I'm sure there's some other thing. Most of them are different ways of doing things, like hitting Enter to rename a file instead of launching it (something I find quite nice, actually) no cut/paste for files (but I know why that is, and sort of agree with it) Dock's a little laggy when right-clicking the applications folder I have in there, and sometimes Dock crashes on me. Oh, and when apps want to get your attention they bounce in the Dock until I click on the app. Sorry, Dock, but iCal is in another desktop; I'll flip to it in a minute...oh, jeeze it won't stop bouncing, okay fine.
