College and ExposÚ
Authored by: eduo on Oct 25, '03 03:37:10AM

From what I've seen, it seems like ExposÚ might be the single most attention-grabbing of OSX to date (that and the fast-user switching). PC and Mac users alike are mesmerized by it. I've had PC friends say that this has convinced them.

That last bit is funny, because for most PC users ExposÚ is difficult to understand, as they usually use their applications in maximized mode all the time and "Drag and drop" sounds to them like they need to install software or something, as it's not even used in Windows Explorer (their Finder-like File management program), where they use the bizarre right-click to copy, move or delete files (color me anal, if you will, but I don't trust "cutting" and "pasting" files in the least trustworthy or intuitive).

Erm, you DO know that in OS X you can copy and paste files in the Finder to duplicate them, right?

Right, but what he's saying is that "drag and drop" is a foreign concept to a LOT of the consumer-level computer world.

It's obvious, second-nature stuff to most Mac users, I'd say, and perhaps it's taken for granted sometimes. ;-)

good god it is overlooked everywhere else.

that's one of the things that drives me bonkers about kde and gnome in linux is they both have such *poor* drag/drop support.

Yeah, either in 98 or something like Windows 3.0. Gosh... They called Windows a Mac OS rip off for a reason, you know...
