Paths in the Grass

John Siracusa on why the Mac OS X haxie situation defies a simple summary:

People are inscrutable; Mac users, doubly so. Their computing desires follow suit. You can waste all the time and energy you want explaining why some feature is dumb or foolish or will actually make the people who use it less effective or efficient or whatever objective metric you’re using to judge such things. But if it makes someone happy, you’re sunk. Argument over.
