Maximising windows in OS X Yosemite

It has been a LONG time since i've posted anything here but i found this little nugget today while playing around with the OS X Yosemite Beta and I'm sure this is going to drive existing Mac users insane for a while!

When you click on the green zoom button on the top-left hand corner of a window in Apple's new Operating System, it defaults to bringing the window in question into full screen mode rather than simply filling the available screen real estate minus the dock and menu bar. This is ANNOYING! However, it is possible to get the traditional behaviour of the green button by doing one of the following:

1 - Holding down the alt/option key while you click the green button
2 - Not clicking the button at all and instead double clicking on the title bar

Heres hoping that Apple allow users to change this behaviour somewhere easily like they did with the 'natural' scrolling in OS X Lion which was equally annoying and unnecessary :)
