I am not saying they are bad (and I use them all above anything else
except Numbers), just that I don't like the direction of tacking on
NEW features that don't work as well as the original app. Of course
right now I cannot think of examples because I have just gotten used
to it :) I also had many many complaints about the UI changes in
10.5 that were seemingly done for no reason. Window/menu borders, the
whole dock, etc. I heard it was even worse in the betas. Doesn't
make the system bad, just troubling that resources are used on that
instead of something else.
