Arnie Greenfield Posted about 2 years ago Mac vs Windows OS: One Size Fits All? The assumption behind both the Mac and PC interfaces is that UIs should be intuitive - when you click or double click on something, the resulting functionality should intuitively be what you expect. Both interfaces are very consistent - for example, click and double click mean the same thing, no matter where you click. The goal is to minimize the learning curve; while the Mac has a reputation for being easier to use, in fact the interfaces are similar. The interfaces attempt to hide the complexity of the operating system, allowing you to accomplish desired tasks without having to understand what actually is happening "under the covers."
