[Oliver Peters] "[andy patterson] "Keep in mind OS X is still using a Windows 95 paradigm in a world of mobile devices and touch screens. For the record Windows XP and even Windows 7 use a Windows 95 paradigm as well but Windows 8 changed everything."

Care to clarify what you mean by that?"

I thought it was obvious but I guess not. Windows 3.0 and the Mac OS 6 looked similar. One could say they had a similar paradigm. Windows 95 launched and introduced the Taskbar. Apple opted to leave the menubar and ad the Dock to keep up with the taskbar. That paradigm is still used by Apple today. It is a good paradigm for desktop computers with a keyboard and mouse. For small10" tablets it does not work that well. Apple has decide to keep OS X a Windows 95 type OS and allow iOS to operate on mobile touch screen devices. Microsoft was not going to make two operating system. MS designed Windows 8 to operate in two different modes. Keep in mind Windows had touch screen support prior to Windows 8 but not the Metro GUI. The Windows 95 desktop paradigm will work with touch screen monitors that 24" or bigger. The Dock and Taskbar can be cool but on an 11" touch screen tablet not so much. The Windows 95 paradigm still works great and the Taskbar can do some cool things. The video link below shows the Windows 7 taskbar does do a few things better than Windows 10 taskbar.
