    And you can drag the conditions (Apple calls them predicates) right or left to make them equal to or sub-conditions.

    So just with the GUI, using the Option key and the plus signs, you can make a Boolean Smart Folder that does something like

    Name starts with "mpeg-"


    (Extension is "mpeg" OR Extension is "avi" OR Extension is "mp4")


    ((File is system file) OR (File is alias))
