I was fooling around with the launchbar on my Mac OS X box, and I wanted some of the things gone and I wanted Mozilla and a few other things in the launch bar. I brought up the preferences and couldn’t see a way to specify what I wanted, the way one does for the Start menu on Windows. On a wild hair, I just dragged the Mozilla icon over the bar and let go. Blip, a little animated graphic zips in there and now it is there forever. Hmm, says I, I wonder if I can do the same to get rid of them? I grabbed the IE icon, pulled it away and out into the main part of the desktop, where it moved, and then vanished in a literal puff of smoke. I thought that was so spiffy that I deleted a bunch of stuff just to watch it. I’m developing faith in this OS that there is always an easy way to do things. Most of the time when I find there isn’t, I’m just overthinking. Years of Windows and having to constantly fight it to get ones work done ingrains bad habits. OS X enables better ones. Long live OS X!
