I'm a Mac noob too, an Ubuntu and Windows power user, and in this five-year-old post it's amazing how many things are still annoying. Yes I understand how they work, yes I know the workarounds, but it doesn't make them any less annoying or stupid.

I found a nice app to serve the purpose of Compiz's Grid plugin called ShiftIt.

I think what I miss most right now is the ability to Alt-key to drive the menu. Windows/Gnome have intuitive menu shortcuts that you don't have to memorize.

Usable, yes. Better usability, no. Intuitive ... not until you memorize all the little hidden features.

When I mention these things to friends, they always want to educate me on the workarounds or how to deal with things. I've already figured those things out. It doesn't make them any less annoying! :)

Thanks for the great post.
