Response to: This is a general problem with the Mac GUI

Exactly!!!


I hate mac. Mac sucks sucks sucks in keyboard navigation.
Windows is the mother of keyboard navigation.


I wish mac could learn from windows.


I especially like Alt+<underlined menu items>, which
is sort of universally works everywhere even if you
happen to forget the shortcut keys.

    Just enable Keyboard navigation. It is an option on OS X. Any menu any submenu becomes accessible via the keyboard.

    In addition to key-stroke accelerators you may navigate through menus with arrow keys.

      Sure, but YOU didn't mention that two button mice work just as well on macs as on any other computer. It's just that Apple doesn't make them.

        Actually any Mouse with any number of bottons will work well in OS X, I use an intelliMouse Explorer and OS X allows programability for all those extra buttons...

        OS X's Aqua GUI has no general problems its only that your point of view has you looking at it differently. Microsoft made headway with XP's Luna GUI, and supposedly "longhorn" will be even better, but as far as system stability and ease of use Mac OS X is still a decade ahead of Microsoft, and will be for the forseeable future...
