Yeah, I like my Mac – but if you go on and on like this with the Apple love you automatically volunteer to teach my dad how to use mail.app.
The other thing to explain to him, a recent switcher, is that on Macs the menu bar isn’t tied to the window. You can have an application be ACTIVE without a window being present.
How messed up that is to you depends on how long you’ve been in it. I’m in too deep, man, too deep.
