After years or Windows, I bought a Mac.
It is a shitty OS.

Resizing windows? Nope
Uninstallign apps easy (some) ? Nope
Show/Hide files easy? Nope
Jump between chrome windows? Nope

Wtf is wrong with you Apple?

    You're using it wrong. Trust Apple, they know better what's good for you than you do. That's why you just gave them a lot of money.

    You have to understand, that some things just works differently. But everything is possible just like in Windows or linux systems.

    @Fast-Nop is that a sarcasm or not? πŸ€”

    @irene depends on "how you use it". ;-)

    BTW, why you bothered with buying the Mac at all? Do you have spare money to burn? πŸ€” Give it to me then! 😏

    Most windows can be resized by hovering over any edge and clicking.

    Most apps can be uninstalled by simply removing them from the Applications folder. If you need a more in-depth uninstall, typically removing the corresponding folder in /Library/Application Support will do the trick.

    Showing hidden files *does* require a terminal command or third party app, but typically isn’t an everyday requirement unless you like prepending dots to your filenames.

    You can bounce between windows within an application with Command + `

    Hope that helps a bit!

    @mlask how can i resize windows by hitting a specific part of the screen and the window will get size based where i hit?

    @irene workplace bought it for me, didn’t have a choice

    @Kaji thanks it helps, but i am frustrated why such simple thing that were in Windows XP, are not on the latest version of MAC OS

    @rookiemaverick i use them but a lot of things like navigating thru windows require mouse, and i hate using a mouse when I shouldn’t

    Honestly, I’m not a macos fan nor a windows fan, but I guess the problems are that you’re trying to transfer your Windows knowledge to MacOS, which doesn’t work exactly the same. There’s still some bad parts about MacOS

    Give it time. It took me about a month to convert a few years ago, now there’s no looking back. Although I do run Windows VM in Parallels, so there is some looking back, and get the best of both to a degree.

    The only thing i really like about macOS is the styling :p
    Made my linux look like it and it's perfect

    I have both. My main complaints about Mac OS is a clunky file explorer (finder) experience and inferior window snapping (OOTB).

    Buy magnet(1$) for window snapping and download hyperswitch to get your alt tabbing back

    Macos window management sucks, above tools help you forget

    @nofckingcluedev get Spectacle for awesome window resizing. And use cmd+` for in app window switching, Cmd+Tab for between app switching. And use Ctrl+Cmd+F for full screen switching.

    Fun fact: there’s always complaining about things that work differently on Mac when someone switches from Windows. And never, when someone switches from Mac... Oh, wait... ;)

    @Kaji Showing hidden files / folders can also be achieved via cmd + shift + . (Same to hide them) no need for any third party apps.

    @mlask Everything is possible on macos? Then, please tell me where I can find the source code so I can review it 😊

    @linuxxx source code is not the ability of the system. It's outside of the scope
  • 2
    @irene Let me rephrase: please tell me how I'd be able to review the system for security flaws while using it.

    Other than that, loading a custom kernel module would be inside the scope since it directly has to do with the system...

    @linuxxx still out of scope πŸ€”

    @mlask Absolutely not everything.
    Unless I need to enter the Konami code somewhere to unlock the shortcuts?

    @linuxxx you want to review the source code of osx.....
    πŸ˜‚
    0. Security
    1. Before hiring you I will like to review your email accounts
    2. To be friend with you I will like to review you and judge you.

    How does it sound?

    P.S. I am a hardcore Linux fan and preacher. But I don't make a line shorter by rubbing it. πŸ˜‹

    Wait.. You can't resize windows in MacOS?

    clearly we another case of someone who's stuck between windows πŸ˜…

    For resizing windows, theres an App called "Magnet" - it just works like the windows resizing. Costs 1$ i think

    @linuxxx Probably that's what it comes down to: Requirements. If you need to know the code because security is essential to you, you need an open source OS and maybe not Windows/macOS. If you need to develop iOS apps you need macOS, but probably wouldn't do banking on this machine if you don't trust Apple as far as to enter your banking details on a mac. Linux distros are great for servers, smaller devices and to some are great desktops, but then a large portion of (mostly proprietary) software just isn't available on desktop linux. I guess all big OSes have some fields where they excel and each one of them has major flaws in some way. But it's good to have a choice. Would be nice to have the one that does everything, but you know that's never gonna happen.

    @rookiemaverick There’s a difference between the privacy of a human being, and the source code of a software

    @prabandham Learn something new every day. Thanks!

    @mlask Yup, because when someone switches from macos to windows they have nothing to complain about :)

    Highly recommend magnet, I think it's a $1 in the app store. Makes resizing windows a breeze
