Wow thanks so much for this. I was bashing my head in having to click the yellow bubble. Wish they wouldn't move system preferences around. Now if I can just get my bluetooth to work so that I can have multi-touch gestures on my magic mouse then I will be far less ****** off about Mountain Lion!

This is a great example of how Apple seems to be systematically destroying Mac OS X's reputation as an easy use operating system. What does this have to do with the dock? They should have just left it in General. These type of changes seem to have started since the introduction of Lion. I have constantly been finding myself googling how to do things like this. Feedback has been sent.

Well I have Lion 10.7.5 and that option is no longer there!
Come on Apple, the bigger you grow, the more you are beginning to resemble Microsoft.
In fact ever since you moved to Intel, my computing life has become a ****.
I used to be so smug when Windows users - friends used to tell me about all their problems.
It seem sthat now we are all in the same boat!

Well I eventually found it (why did they move it?):
System prefs / General / check box "double-click a window's title bar to minimize"

Great! Thanks for the help!
Yes, why did they move it?? Because they can I guess but makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.

Even a better question is why is this not the default? Why would you not want this feature that has been part of the Mac OS for ages? Same with having to hunt up the "Show connected hard drives, servers, etc. on your desktop" feature. And then there is the battery icon which now only displays percentage (not time). This is progress???

This is all in an effort to make OS X just like iOS:
- They want you to use Spaces to switch between full screen apps--not minimize them
- On iOS, there's no filesystem or external drives--just iCloud and local storage within the app
- iOS devices show percentage for battery life
