Couldn't agree more .. I'm also waiting for "Cut" to disappear from the right-click menu
I'll give OS X one thing, and one thing only .. the networking seems polished (at least for home users) .. other than that I consider it the bastardised inbred mountain cousin of Linux.
Canonical seem to want to turn Ubuntu into a "free OS X" but without doing the hard work of sorting core issues .. just an OS X veneer that's doing nobody any favours .. least of all THEM, nobody wants a free OS X, Apple fans want Apple and Linux fans want stability and security over purple and shiney.
I've been playing with OS X recently (not because I want to, but because my son needs it for college), and was amazed at how much effort Canonical seem to have put into making Ubuntu look like it .. IMHO they have their priorities all wrong.
C'mon Canonical, work out the kinks in the core features .. THEN, make it an OS X lookalike if you must.
From a personal perspective, I think the OS X interface blows chunks compared to most Linux DE's anyway .. so even the veneer sucks.
