Automatic Switching

Pierre Igot:

Right now, I’m seeing a pattern in Mac OS X and in Apple’s applications that I really don’t like: something akin to systematic UI intrusiveness when background processes fail.…Apple wants us to adopt Mac OS X because it’s an advanced, multithreading, multitasking system. Fine. But then please design Mac OS X so that it handles multiple tasks more gracefully! I am definitely a multitasker and I hate having to wait for a process to finish before I can switch to something else. Mac OS X lets me switch. It shouldn’t force me to switch back whenever there is an error or failure!
