Make the green button set a window to full screen size
Authored by: hamarkus on Mar 13, '09 05:04:44PM

While occasionally there are apps which don't the 'optimal' thing when pressing the zoom button (hardwired by me to ctrl-Z-cmd), I much prefer the Mac behaviour. A lot of apps benefit from full-screen (eg, library-based ones like Aperture), but crtl-Z-cmd, ahem zoom, already maximises those.
Maybe my preference is because I have such a good visual memory but a horrible one for non-visual things, I always need to keep my open windows visible, otherwise I forget about and loose track of them. And when I need to work in two applications in parallel I need to keep both windows visible, otherwise I forget what I just typed or read in other one.
