OSX gripes


I want to love OSX, really. But why I things so hard? Really, some clever ass will say: things are just different. Well, I count mouseclicks. And I think software should adhere to the principle of Least Surprise.

So on the dark side I use PaintShopPro7 (8 is horrible).

Task: make a screenshot and trim it.


  1. printscreen (or alt printscreen)
  2. fire up PSP7
  3. Paste
  4. click: selection rectangle
  5. drag rectangle
  6. shift-R (crops image)

OSX and the shareware Pixel program:

  1. Command-Control-Shift-3
  2. Fire up Pixel
  3. Paste ??? no image
