After using the Mac for several months now, I’ve found some shortcomings.  Below is a running list.

  • Finder is very limited, I like Pathfinder better UPDATE this is known in the Mac community and has been a sore spot for a while now
  • copying files is very limited, can’t “merge” folders, very limited when compared to Ubuntu Unity and Windows 7 *WTF*
  • Windows Management – can’t snap to edges of screen, not even a 3rd party app UPDATE found a program called Cinch that does some of this
  • Windows Management – can’t maximum windows UPDATE found out this is not true
  • a lot of wasted space on the side of the dock
  • Dashboard is completely useless, you can’t put widgets on the desktop *WTF*
  • App Store – missing some very important apps (Firefox, VLC, LibraOffice, etc..), it looks like Apple is not trying to get open source applications in the store
  • no automated uninstall system
  • installing apps is not very straight forward UPDATE I’ve gotten used to Mac method and it’s not so bad
  • iPhoto completely sucks UPDATE this is known in the Mac community and has been a sore spot for a while now
