This completely defies logic. Growl does a good job of alerting the user. I just cannot understand why Growl was not acquired. Sure they added a notification panel that probably required access to the kernel code in order to implement… but in then it is uneventful. The worst part is that I have not determined which to use although it’s probably growl… but then there is the individual bias that the Apple apps are going to have instead of playing nice in the sandbox. I also hate that something in my system is trying to email me using mail.app. I want to specify the mail app and that’s that.
