The windows 10 implementation is so shitty. The windows don't even expand in the right place. If you had a left window and a right window, when you expand them, the left window might expand to the right and vice versa making the transition confusing when you have a lot of windows open.

>> No.54646183

Basically this.

Linux is used on computers that don't need to interface much with regular users. So the most common installations are probably barebones setups, that support servers etc.

Windows is very commonly used on consumers PCs, simply because they support a lot of hardware and commercial software. They also benefited from their previous market dominance from the late 90s, when PCs became a thing.

OS X is probably the prettiest OS, but it's not really the most capable in any way. And it runs on very specific harware. Everytime I log into OS X, I notice how Safari is still behind other browsers in so many ways, but hey, it looks so minimalistic and it loads fast now, but for what purpose.
The whole system seems made to first follow design guidelines and secondly functional guidelines. It's no wonder it's the favourite OS of designers, artists, etc.

So, yeah, OP, it looks smooth, but that's one of the few good things about it.

UI animation is the skeumorphism of 2014/2015/2016. Admittendly, the OS X stuff looks decent. Every other OS just tacks the shit on for the sake of it, generally creating shitty, laggy, and completely pointless animations.

Being behind other browsers is probably a good thing. It would be better if all the browsers were equal with safari, actually, or even behind it, because then the web would be less fucking bloated.

But google wants to turn hypertext into remote computing in order to collect more data, and every other software company wants the web to dominate because users can't own, modify, study, pirate, or crack web apps, so, javascript! webgl! webtrc!

>> No.54646730

Man, Safari doesn't even implement basic CSS standards properly, like flexbox content alignment. There's nothing bloated about such a basic and very useful feature that would allow content alignment on the page to be controlled much easier than it is now.
I'm talking about standards that all the other browsers, even Internet explorer, managed to implement in their latest versions. Safari didn't, because Apple probably cares less about its desktop than its mobile software.

You have the Finder and one application open OP. Open any more apps than that and it's not "smooth" at all, in fact the animations cause it to look and act more sluggishly than if they were there. The whole system is poorly designed.

how is windows-10 NOT smooth?

>> No.54647523

Windows 10 animations are quick but not smooth. They don't slow down.

Linux, if you don't have a GPU that just fucking loves it, you're out of luck. KDE animations work half of the time, Gnome 3 stutters like a bitch (you can even see this on their "trailers" for updates), Cinnamon is fine until you touch the fucking workspace switcher and Unity has weird animations thanks to how Compiz is set up on it by default. I am obviously not going to talk about other DEs because they generally require a composite manager like compton to be decent and the only thing that ever achieves is some stupid fading effect.

And of course you have all of these "muh minimlism I don't need no animations that's for faggots" kind of guys that populate these parts.

Anyone saying the words 'smooth scrolling' has never used a Mac in their life. It's not like the way Opera implemented it in 2007, the scrolling responds exactly as you want it.
