Menu-separators in Mac OS X (annoyances)


I recently had the pleasure of purchasing a Macbook Pro. Firstly, let’s get something out of the way: I do think it’s a dazzlingly beautiful OS, but here’s something I find pretty annoying:

Menu separators

The screenshot below shows an example of a menu with separators in 3 different Operating Systems: Windows 7, Ubuntu 10.04, and Mac OS X 10.6.5

Sometimes it just so happens that I’m clicking around so quickly that I accidentally click on the separator. On Windows and Ubuntu this is fine – it ignores it and keeps the menu open. In Mac OS X, the menu disappears (as if you’ve clicked on something that’s supposed to be clickable)

Anybody else find this annoying?

  1. Very annoying! And frankly, kind of weird, too.
