I’m really getting frustrated with Mac OS 10.7. Apple made a number of behavioral regressions in apps that I use daily.
– The curses support in Terminal is badly broken: if you make it wider than 90 columns, then “man man” wraps completely wrong. You have to do “man man | more” to fix it.
– The new default to reopen the last viewed docs on app launch is horrible. If you quit Preview.app with a dozen PDFs open, then relaunching Preview is glacial. Likewise for MS Word.
– Dragging messages in Mail.app used to show a cool summary of the messages as the drag cursor. They changed it to a generic envelope icon, so I’m less confident that I’m dragging the right messages.
On the other hand, the all-corners resize is fresh air.
Another nice feature: Apple centralized scanning into Preview rather than each scanner manufacturer writing their own GUI code. Good riddance to the CanoScan and HP Scan Pro apps I used to use!
The other changes are mostly neutral to me so far.
