You know, I never really considered Mac OS X a big deal. I expected it to be better than Windows. It is just the way things are. This week I have had the frustration of working with a RedHat 8 operating system laptop. I've been trying to configure it for our packet pickup series. I appreciate that RedHat has a reasonable approximation of a graphical user interface and that it works with cheap cheesey PC hardware. However, I can't stand using it. It is the little things, like how the pointer is linear, it moves the same speed no matter how fast you are moving your mouse. This is unlike the simple "the-way-it-should-work" of Mac OS X, where a little mouse acceleration makes your fingers work less. Why support multiple buttons if you don't support mouse acceleration?
