Command Logic: The rightness of the original Macintosh

Posted on by Mike Evans

John Gruber on the rightness of the original Macintosh design:

The greatest testimony to their genius is just how much of that original design is recognizable in today’s Mac OS X 10.9. A Mac user from 1984 could sit down in front of an iMac or MacBook today and recognize it as a successor to that original machine. That’s simply amazing.

He goes on to analyse the original keyboard shortcut commands and show how these logical and intuitive combinations have stood the test of time. Required reading for all Mac users, especially those of us who are relatively late to the party.
