I'm glad to see Apple corrected what the Mac OS X 10.7.4 update refers to as an "issue": Where "Reopen all windows when logging back in" is always enabled, regardless of what the owner chooses.
Sometimes product manufacturers forget that features don't necessarily have to be mandatory. Mac OS X Lion brought several minor changes with major impact to long-time Mac OS X users. Some changes, like trackpad scrolling in the opposite direction, make adopting the Mac platform a little easier for Windows users switching to Mac for the first time. Apple faces a unique challenge now: How do they continue innovating and continue the current exponential growth without loosing focus on the simplicity that helped them retain such a loyal following these past decades?
The reopen all windows forced-feature caused more frustration for users than I have seen in a long time. It's good to see this "issue" corrected with the fourth major update to Mac OS X Lion.
