... you can cmd-tab back to a hidden app with ease. Minimizing is for things that you don't need to jump back to immediately. In my case, it's for things that I intend to read soon, then eventually find in the dock like two months later, which I then close without actually reading them. Hiding's much quicker, so long as you want to get an entire app out of your way and not just a window.

As a Windows newbie, someday I'll figure out how to get a window that's pinned to the left to stay pinned to the left. Someday.

At least 10 times a day, I try to alt-tab on my company provided Macbook to learn that the app was minimized. And therefore alt-tab doesn't work.

I am willing to declare this the single stupidest thing in the history of operating systems. I appreciate the advice below on how to get around it, and I have stopped minimizing apps so much. But this is just simply not acceptable. To ALLOW you to see the app, to LET you tab to it and then to give a fucking ;) chuckle nope buddy - infuriating. Garbage. Trash.

There's things I like about them (the touchscreen bar is a colossal failure though) but every day this disrupts my workflow.
