I don't get why even hipsters use this garbage -- are they too retarded for any of the true BSD derivatives?

I hate these cluttered ass docks, if it's any larger than mine (pic related) it makes me sick.

shit are you serious? In the current year?
I've hardly ever used mac os but anytime I have it just seems to annoy me that I'll want to do something simple and there doesnt seem to be anyway of doing it or you have to through some roundabout way of configuring something that should be simple and have a lot of options like the dock.

MacOS thread? MacOS thread!

Did any of you fags notice battery life changes with HS? I gained at least 3h on my old ass MB from 2015 ... which doesn't make any sense. AFPS is unlikely to have changed anything so could it be down to Metal 2?

>tiny x buttons even though there's plenty of space for larger, easier to click buttons
You don't have to be on the button to click it. Being near enough to it lights up the button to indicate that you're hovering close enough to it and that clicking will trigger it.
>no window snapping
Yes there is
>ugly applications dock that takes up so much space for windows
You can resize it, move it, and hide it.
>can't customize anything
Maybe not as much as Linux, but you can customize quite a bit more of macOS than you can Windows.
>next to no keyboard shortcuts
This is how I know you haven't actually used macOS. It has keyboard shortcuts for fucking everything and a unified interface for changing them and binding them to arbitrary scripts.

window snapping is on by default in OS X and can be quick-disabled by holding down alt while moving windows around. Do the slightest bit of research yourself instead of trusting random shitposters on /g/

Keyboard short cuts + shiftit. Never use the buttons to close anything, ever.

macOS is normies' "special snowflake" edgy alternative. It used to be the top choice of designey and faggy types. Now it got normified and every Valley hipster and "koder" uses one. Or young start-up "professional", tech evangelist, w/e.

Linux is the recluses' and tinkerers' choice, that gives them a similar feeling of being superior to "the rest".

There are no great OSes, they're all shit in their own ways. People have preferences according to their personality.

You do realize that you have multiple ways to quit an application on OSX right?
>right click -> quit from the dock
>quit from the menubar
>CMD (Winkey) + Q
>no window snapping
False, it's enabled by default, like >>62647749
pointed out, if you mean snapping windows to fit half of the screen then just hold the maximize button and you can use split view or if you mean tiling you can use a script or some app like magnet/bettertouchtool
>can't customize anything
what is kwm? what is Xquartz? what is iterm? what is flavours 2? fuck, you can even run KDE on top of it ffs: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jKSu5tx9xIg
>next to no keyboard shortcuts
LMAO, there's even a built in settings menu that lets you add shortcuts for each program

>hard to navigate between windows
CMD + tab/ CMD+tab then Up to pick a window, Ctrl + Up key, Ctrl + Left/Right, CMD + H to hide a window F11 to show the desktop
just learn it and shut up, literally took me 2 days.

Must be bait because none of this is true

I hate apple, but have to support them. I hate their machines, their build practices, their business practices, their "devices"

But OSX is the best UNIX GUI on the market, period, bar-none. Pic related, a SS from my old mac being used like Linux. EnlightenmentWM on top of Leaopard, iirc

Because they're hipsters. They have a tendency for garbage, things that don't work and going from A to C just to backtrack and get to B entirely because they're hipsters. It's why so many of them are "Communists".

Are you talking about full screen and maximize? You can have either.

why do anti-mactards and OS fanboys in general seem to pride themselves on being too stupid and tech literate to learn how to use an operating system other than the one they've imprinted on?

it's like listening to wintards bitch about the terminal and GNU cucks shit themselves at the prospect of patching uxtheme, they're just too fucking slow or dumb to understand it so they primally screech at it and cover /g/ in their fecal blogs
