    Wouldn't it be nice with a ?Reveal In Finder? feature in the open/save dialogs?

    OS' should be getting slimmer, not fatter. Every little helps.

    Which universe have you lived in for the last 30 years?



    Out of hundreds of OS releases from all vendors, how many times has a version been slimmer than the previous version?

    Agreed, and the more I read about ML the more anxious I am to have it get here, now that it appears that many of the iOSification elements & crap apps can be turned-off. Just having the damn scroll bars beefed up to make them more responsive is worth $30 right there! Moose, Rocco, help the Judge find his checkbook!!! I'm getting tired of having to Option-drag a scroll bar in Lion's Mail, in order to get some finer granularity in the scrolling.



    Regarding Save & Save As, IMHO these were both non-existent problems which got "fixed" by Auto Slave and Versions, regardless of whether they wanted or needed the fix or not. We get a decade of hearing about how remarkably stable OS X is, and then, we get Auto Slave & Versions so we don't lose our data when our remarkably stable OS crashes. Right. I call BS. It's all about iCloud and driving revenue. The more data Apple can drive to their cloud services, the deeper they can reach into our pockets.



    Too bad Apple won't use the 3 levels of Users built into OS X. Managed with Parental Controls would be the option for children, auto saving all their precious little documents; Standard would be Apple's goal of turning your $2500 Mac into a $49 cell phone; and Administrator would be Snow Leopard with more manly scroll bars.
