Regressive Lion: Mac OS X

Sometimes I feel like I should have called this blog “Hulk SMASH!”.

I just caught up with the changes Apple is introducing into it Mac OS X Lion. Amongst them, we find this gem:

One major change Apple’s made in Lion is that running apps are no longer denoted by a little “light” in the Dock. Just like iOS, Lion is designed to manage system resources for the user, in an effort to make multitasking completely seamless. That means the system can “freeze” apps in the background, kill processes, and otherwise do whatever it takes to preserve the user experience.

Yeah, right. That’s akin to taking a step backwards to pre-Multics times, yet Apple sells it as an innovation.

Sad pandas ensue.
