The "Magic Mouse" is trash, and all the scroll bars are tied to it (they disappear when you stop moving your finger on it). The scroll bars also cover files on the sides and bottom. Also, just putting your hand on the thing causes all kinds of mayhem. You can disable the swipe functions, but that breaks some basic navigation.

You can easily keep the scroll bars turned on in the settings so they don't disappear. Also, I don't know what kind of crazy stuff your hand is doing, but my magic mouse never does bad things when my hand is on it. The mouse works just as good, if not better in some cases, than any other mouse.

I have no earthly idea where you get that the latest OSX is a complete mess. I'd much rather use OSX than Win8. And no, I'm not an Apple fanboy either. I use Windows, OSX and Linux the same.

What I've noticed time and time again, the OSX bashers/haters just simpley don't know how to use the OS worth a damn and also have little clue about UNIX. Thus, they bash/hate it. For me, it's no issue at all. I can do just as much on OSX as I can on Windows or Linux. But I'm a software engineer, so I don't just use a few programs and call it a day. I have to know quite a bit about how a particular system works.
