It's slow...it's buggy...it's boring. I honestly can't see anything good in the Finder compared to the classic Finder or other OS's file browser.
Agreed again, except from column view the current finder is no better than the os9 finder. And to the "boring" part, the finder doesn't need to be "exiting", it just has to be intuitive, clever and fast.
If 10.3 doesn't bring some huge improvements to the Finder's speed and usability, I'm ready to put my wallet back in my pocket regardless of the other goodies 10.3 might bring.
I think Apple knows about the "peoples" opinion of the finder, and has been working hard to get it right. At, least that is my hope. We haven't seen much improvements to it in the last few years, and I honestly hope, and believe, that Apple has been working on it.
The Finder should be the main 'feature' in 10.3. Retarded features such as 'piles' tacked on to the current Finder isn't gonna do it.
Agree again. Piles may seem cool, but it remains a feature that most people don't need, and it does not add something to the "feel" of the os than it is a toy. Apple really should focus on the important things, and right now the finder is number ONE in my opinion.
Unless there's some major tweaking of the current Finder or a complete rewrite, this computer will stick with 10.2 until Apple decides to do something about the, IMO, most important app.
I'm sure I will upgrade no matter what improvements or lack of improvements to the finder Apple provides, and hopefully the finders speed will improve with a new dual 1.8 970. But it could be so much better, and they now have the possibility to make a opearting system that leaves every other os in the dust. I hope they'll take the torch and show us the way. We simply deserve better. We've all been using it for years, and there's no reason why we should keep looking back. Now is the time to leave os9 behind a full year after the burial of the os 9 box.
