Jag-wire

Jaguar first impressions (new to X, too ;-)
A couple months ago, I installed 10.2.6 on the iMac(CRT)/600...figured that using the Apache server would be much more convenient than uploading endless Perl files to a host during script debugging ;-) So far my uses for X have only been Apache, IE, Moz, Safari, BBEdit, Photoshop, iTunes, Terminal, and Sys Prefs. As far as the system goes, it's fine.

But lord, that Finder sucks.....


With any luck, I won't be programming the Mac Toolbox anymore, so whatever Apple wants to do with that kernel and its extensions, that's great. But I've been using Finder since 1985, and certain expectations have been built in that time -- by Apple. The OS X Finder is a true disappointment; an actual step backwards. Here's the list of gripes from people for whom I've removed OSX:

Prefs
Help
Finding
Desktop
Filing
Menus
Dock
Finder windows
