Ha ha ha!

Be careful -- Apple _used_ to be good at this sort of thing (or at least
tried), but in recent years, they've seem to have simply gone nuts, and
apparently just do whatever seems kewl at the moment.

[One minor but irritating example:  they switched to the windoze
window-manager button layout which places the close button _right_ next
to the minimize/maximize buttons -- and _removed the labels_ from the
buttons when you're not mousing over them!  Mouse slip?  Whoops!]

Occam's razor split hairs so well, I bought the whole argument!
