Perfect User Interface of Mac OS X Mountain Lion

While Apple pursues a doubtful UX strategy with their mobile operating system iOS, the desktop operating system Mac OS X provides some examples of perfect user experience design. Take this example: When you plug in a non-touch mouse, scroll-bars appear on every windows automatically. This is a nearly perfect UX because it obeys two of the most important rules of UX design:

  • Show only what is needed for an action
  • Do not show whatever is unnecessary for an action

Well done, Apple.
