Google docs (while editing a file) provide the same desktop style undo as MS Office. Outside of a given file (Google Drive), they use the same Undo pattern as gmail (pop-up). I added the pattern to the original post.

@DA01 I have a feeling you scanned through the article rather quickly - he most definitely doesn't suggest Back is always an 'oops' decision, in fact, he says Back serves both as an 'oops' as well as an 'ok' action.

Completely agree, I'm not arguing in favour of the windows approach, simply stating that if you design for the windows world then you might have to go with convention over objective usability. Luckily in the Mac world the conditioning also aligns with what is the most objectively usable solution, so no problems there :)

I agree that the visual weight and labels of action buttons are an important design aspect to consider (and very useful in this case where position alone can't be relied on), but it’s not the only aspect. I feel that a meticulous designer would think about how every design aspect affects the user - position cannot be ignored.
