How to use a spatial Finder in OS X
Authored by: llee on Jan 21, '10 09:14:36AM

Windows acting as tools instead of representations of file system objects has been the single most difficult change for me to embrace in making the transition from the Classic OS to OS X. I would prefer that this particular setting be offered independently of utility add-ons such as toolbar and sidebar. I would welcome the implementation of a preference item for this functionality similar in scope to the "Always open folders in a new window" checkbox that exists now. But I think it would be a tall order to engineer the system so that choice could be made available.

This comment surprised me a little, that someone in 2010 was still talking about difficulty with the transition to OSX. I mean OSX has been around just shy of 10 years and through 6 major versions... I had figured everyone had done been transitioned already!

I'm fully OsX'ified, but I do still morn the loss of ClarisCAD, man that was a great program. Nothing out there is as good, some things come close, but they all are missing something.

Every platform transition has meant some major loss of functionality and productivity that I've never managed to regain, despite the swathe of new features.

Leper brought back springloaded window tabs as ... oh I don't know what they call them now. Remember in OS9 you could drag a window to the bottom of the screen, it would change to just the name in a tab. You could pop them open, then if you felt like it, tear it off the screen bottom and make it back into a regular window.

The Leper way of doing things is so clunky, and loses half the functionality. Oh, they look pretty, but they're no match for what I lost.

There are a whole host of "new and improved" features that simply don't match the old for efficiency. Back up your System folder? Good luck with that.
