Since macOS Yosemite debuted in fall 2014, buttons on dialogs haven’t been as skeumorphic as the overwhelming majority of them are in this ad. Google had to stitch together an antequiated collection of imagery in order to depict a false narrative. It’s a farce to pretend that a regular part of using macOS includes these dialogs. They’re infrequent, and when they appear, they’re important. Moreover, for those who don’t need a full-blown desktop operating system — which I unequivocally do need — there’s nothing you can do on a Chromebook that you can’t do on an iPad, with a vastly superior user experience. This ad is garbage.
